Pop Up Printshop

Posted by Abbey on Mar 1, 2016

Well hello there!

And good morning to you, yes you - over there - I've got some news to put a smile on that pretty face...

I am bringing back a series of print shops for the Summer - our first print shop is an introduction to Print Making -  we will cover letterpress, lino printing and screen printing - think tattoo inspired birdies and anchors, geometrics and {totally overdone but none the less still charming} moustaches and bow ties - you get the picture.

Like the sound of that? naturally, it's going to be a little bit special, learning about block printing techniques before trying your new skills to create your very own canvas tote bag and tea towel as well as creating your own ranges of cards and a print and hanging out with the team et moi talking all things paper and print.

What is the date?
Choose from either 7th May or 4th June - further dates to follow.

What are the timings?
10.30 til 3 pm.

What do you need to bring?
Absolutely nothing, just your pretty self - we do use inks so sleeves that roll up are a must and family heirlooms should be avoided.

Do I need a design?
We will have some template designs for you to choose from for the lino print and you will have the opportunity to create a design of your very own. If you want to be super prepared then prep a design at home, but remember block shapes with little or no detail work best, especially if it is your first time.

Where is the Print Shop?
In my studio at Sadler Bridge, Sadler Gate, Cathedral Quarter, Derby DE1 3NT.

What's the cost?

£50 per person which includes all of your materials including tea towel, tote bag and card and envelopes as well as a little goodie bag.

You in? cool, book your spot below*


*Sorry lovelies I can't reserve any spaces until you make your pretty little minds up if you can make it or not - we only have limited spaces, time is short and time is money - so you are either in or out.

A little bit of Small Print...

- Once your space is booked it is non refundable and non transferrable.
- If you could arrive 5 minutes before the workshop starts that would be fabulous.
- There will be a 30 minute break for lunch.

Want to see what we get upto in these classes? take a look at Pop Up Print Shops {and at Folly}, and the Christmas workshop here and a lovely blog post from one of the lovely ladies who joined us here.

Our workshop is suitable for beginners or more experienced paper lovers that want to have paper adventures in a fun environment.
