Children’s Holiday Club, Printmaking: Black Cats

15th August 2022 - 17th August 2022

Celebrate national black cat appreciation day along with artist and printmaker Joanna Wilkinson on this 3-day printmaking course. Spend 3 fun and inky days working in our printmaking studio and exploring various printing techniques. You’ll use the theme of black cats and Louis Wain’s lovely cat drawings and sculptures to create different prints and cards to take home. Along the way, you’ll find out some fun and interesting facts about our feline friends!

She uses printing, collage, analogue/slow photography, and sometimes even old style colouring techniques like felt tips in her work.

Due to capacity in the print studio, parents will not attend with their children during the course. Do I Need to Bring Anything?
