A tour of the Layered Space exhibition is the starting point for young people to make their own prints, and experiment with space, light, form and tone. 

Working with an artist, children will use a variety of print techniques, and present their work to family at the end of the session to achieve their certificate.

Subsidised by Arts Council England, our Discover Printmaking is a wonderful opportunity to experience the Leicester Print Workshop environment and learn about how professional artists make work.
