Sidney Cooper Workshop No 4

More joy for the printmakers on our 
last workshop of the day! We had 
lots of diversity, colour and happy 
printers leaving the Sidney Cooper 
gallery yesterday. Again a big thank 
you to Ruth McDonald, Hannah and 
Teresa who worked so hard in making 
this such a success and to everyone 
who joined in and made this so much 
fun for all of us. Not forgetting 
Hazel and Harriet for inviting us to 
the Sidney Cooper and making this all 

Sidney Cooper Workshop No 3

More creative print making produced by 
our students during our Wednesday morning 
workshop in Canterbury. We experimented 
with screen printing using photographic 
stencils with transparent ink and mono 
printing using a variety of mark making 
ideas to create texture and pattern. Well 
done everyone!

Sidney Cooper Workshop No 2

Here are some brilliant examples of prints 
produced by a very enthusiastic group of 
students on Tuesday afternoon at The Sidney 
Cooper Gallery, many of whom had never 
printed before! 

The Sidney Cooper Workshop No 1

To coincide with The Print Block
collaboration with the Sidney Cooper
Contemporary Print Fair we were 
asked if we could provide some 
printing workshops in Canterbury. 
Over 2 days we held 4 workshops 
which proved very popular and we 
had some amazing feedback which 
was lovely. 
These are examples of work by our 
first class. The screen printing
taught by Suki and Karen focused 
on colour transparency & pattern 
making and the monoprinting taught 
by Ruth McDonald introduced them 
to colour, pattern, texture and 
her expertise for mark making.

We would like to thank our brilliant 
and lovely volunteers Teresa and 
Hannah who worked tirelessly 
juggling buckets of water, 
hairdryers and a host of other 
useful things which were invaluable 
in making our workshops run so 
smoothly. Also a big thank you to 
Hazel and Harriet at The Sidney 
Cooper Gallery for being so 
supportive and for giving us the 
opportunity to teach printmaking 
in such a lovely big space!
