Happy New Year from Leicester Print Workshop
5th January 2017
Turn over a new leaf. Make 2017 the year you learn to print.
Is printmaking one of your new year resolutions?
Whether you are a beginner, in need of a refresher or an experienced printmaker looking to try a new technique we’ve got a selection of courses suitable for participants at all levels of experience. Our Introduction to Print courses are a popular starting point, and we’re running two courses starting in February, a Thursday morning class (10.30am – 1.30pm) and a Thursday evening class (6pm – 8pm.)
We’re also running a selection of short taster sessions making it easy to dip your toe in and have a go at printmaking.

Week Long Summer Schools
Following on from the success of our first Summer Schools last year we’re very happy to be running these courses again this July. This time, chose from etching, lithography or textile screenprinting and spend a week learning and experimenting with a small group of participants.
