Our Tutors


Our Workshop Programme tutors are experienced in their field of printmaking and drawing.  Printmaking workshops are delivered by active members who are very familiar with our facilities and equipment. We also offer occasional Masterclasses by visiting artists who are highly skilled in their chosen technique.
