Investigating Patterns: Printmaking Workshop

Fully Booked

Come and explore the many different patterns which decorate the beautiful furniture, staircase, ceilings and floors of this palatial home. Discuss regular and irregular patterns and then draw your own shape, turn it into a printing block and use it to make your own designs by printing it in different combinations. This workshop involves messy materials and accompanying adults will be expected to assist.


“Our learning expectations were exceeded – the best features were the printing activity, the gallery/collection and how the two were linked.” Teacher
