Printmaking Workshops JULY–NOVEMBER 2021

Whether you are new to the craft of printmaking, or wanting to extend your current creative skills, please join me in a small-group printmaking workshop held in my own private art studio in beautiful Maleny. Maleny is nestled in the heart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, just over an easy hours drive north of Brisbane.

I have listed below workshop dates for the second half of 2021.

Minimum student numbers for workshops are 4 people and maximum 5 or 6, depending on the workshop; that keeps our workshops as small intimate groups.

From Beginners to Advanced, with or without prior printmaking experience, there is something for everyone. Private Tuition and Private Group workshops are available year-round.

Workshop dates are released twice a year – in June for July-November that year; and December for February-June the following year. Current students and people on my mailing list are sent the workshop release dates 2 weeks before they are published live on my website. Click here if you want to join my mailing list.
