Be Creative!

Print Making

Explore a variety of techniques in print making including mono-printing, stencilling, block printing, lino-cut, dry point, and experiment with printing found objects. Create your own unique prints or editions that can be later framed, given as gifts or a batch of your very own hand-made cards.

Felt Making

Explore the ancient craft of felt making, traditional wet felting offers an opportunity to play with colour & texture using wool and silk fibres to create your own unique pieces. Using the resist method you can create 3D pieces e.g. flowers or bowls.


Batik is a very creative medium offering the opportunity to create images on fabric by applying wax & dye to the fabric to create a unique piece of your own. Students can explore dipping and/or topical dyeing to create a pictorial piece on cloth which can be framed or sewn up later.

Tapestry weaving

The tapestry weaving involves planning & designing your sampler, selecting your materials for your warp and weft, setting up a loom, weaving and finishing a sample piece using a variety of techniques to create a unique piece. This workshops gives you enough to continue developing your skills at home.
