Join Artist Nikki Gardham in this families workshop to play with lo-fi printmaking techniques. Using everyday materials from the recycling bin, create collage prints, repeat patterns and one-off artworks. Get inspired by your favourite nature-inspired patterns in the collection for your prints. Then chop up, change and reinvent materials into your own colourful relief designs! You'll get to work with fun materials and a A3 table top portable printing press to get the best result from your prints.
Your family will come away with a set of experimental prints and tips to make print designs at home.
