Coronavirus Update: This course has been postponed from April 2020 and will be running with reduced numbers and new social distancing, hygiene and safety measures in place [as of 2nd September].

A tour of the Chado: Dreaming in Texture 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.
