CREATE PRINT - Taster sessions

We’re introducing new sessions that help you understand the basics of a technique and decide if you’d like to explore it in a longer course.

You will see basic techniques, examples of the myriad of possibilities each technique offers and try some hands on printing yourself. Each participant will take home a finished piece.

These sessions are two hours long and cost £30 with places for 4-6 people.
