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!
