Experiment with collagraph, a textural approach to printmaking. Through creating collage-like surfaces make a collection of playful prints using a printing press.

Take inspiration from the works of artists such as Julius Olsson and Wilhelmina Barns Graham who painted in Porthmeor Studios to as your prints take shape. In this workshop, you will become familiar with the process of “intaglio” printmaking, printing from a textured surface. 

For children aged 7-13, these Summer workshops are like no other, where children get to work in our studio overlooking the sea and use the same high art quality materials as our adult courses. They are taught by experienced artist tutors and leave feeling inspired with beautiful work.

My practice rolls with the seasons. When the buds are forming, when the growth is raucous and full of life, I want to be in it so during Spring and Summer I spend time gathering sketches and ideas from outside. In the Winter months I bring these sketches together inside into patterns and start carving and printing. And then the cycle begins again when Spring comes!

Although my prints often focus on plants, I try to use the plants as a way of telling a wider story about the places in which they grow. Sometimes I print, sometimes I draw, sometimes I make with clay!

I have a background teaching art and craft in a variety of settings from museums to prisons, hospitals to schools and galleries to community centers.
