Maleny (Sunshine Coast Hinterland) is my base. Private Group workshops can be held in my studio, or I can travel to you. I will travel north to Hervey Bay, south to Byron Bay and west to Toowoomba to run my Private Group Printmaking Workshops. Please contact me if you wish to run a workshop outside of the general South-East Queensland region and we can discuss logistics and pricing.
*FINAL COST will be based on workshop location. Depending on your location and whether you want run a half, one or two day workshop, I may need to stay overnight. Accommodation can be discussed. A fee to cover travel costs may also be charged. This will be discussed with your enquiry.
*GROUP NUMBERS are negotiable. I can work with larger groups, depending on the nature of the workshop, materials and space available, and this can also be discussed with your enquiry. GROUP NUMBERS are also contingent on space:people ratios in relation to COVID19 social distancing rules and regulations. Workshop numbers will need to be discussed before confirming a private group workshop booking.
Are you an Arts or Crafts Group wanting to explore printmaking?
Are you an Artisan space looking to offer a workshop in an age-old craft?
Or do you have a group of friends, family or work colleagues, wanting to get together to share a creative experience?
Private group art workshops are a great way to spend time with people you know, bouncing creative ideas around, and encouraging each other. You may be a group of friends sharing art skills, or looking to celebrate a birthday or looking for a staff social experience with a difference.
Whether you are new to printmaking, or want to further develop your skills, you may be interested in Private Group printmaking art workshop.
I can bring the workshop to you, or your can bring your group to my studio.
I am passionate about printmaking and love to share my skills. I work to create a relaxed and fun environment; a safe space for you and your friends to connect with their creativity and create your own pieces of art in your own space.
My Private Group printmaking art workshops are suitable for creative-minded people from beginner to intermediate skill levels.
SCHOOL GROUPS: I have worked with Year 11 Visual Art students as part of the new Senior Syllabus at several high schools in South East Queensland. My gelatin plate monoprinting workshop has been popular with schools, introducing an exciting experimental approach for students to explore. Contact me if you would like to discuss this further.
YOUNG CHILDREN: Private Group workshops in my personal studio are not suitable for children under 14 years of age. If you are a family group wanting to a private group workshop and you have younger children, please contact me to discuss further.
I can run any of my printmaking workshops for private groups from my own studio; and can provide all tools and materials needed for each workshop.
If you would like me to travel to your location, any workshops is possible, depending on your location and group numbers. Etching and eco-printing workshops are the most restrictive given the nature of the equipment used, so this will need to be discussed before finalising any booking. I am able to provide tools and materials if needed, or can work with resources at your facility if preferred.
An objective of all of my workshops is to share my skills and impart knowledge and information so you can continue to explore and develop your new-found skills in your own studio or home.
In most instances, tools and materials needed to learn and produce a piece or body of work will be supplied. We will discuss materials prior to your private group workshop, and I will confirm what materials fee will apply.
You can read about the materials fee for my public workshops here. This will give you an idea of the sort of material inclusions, or what is needed for your workshop.
If the private group booking is at your location, it is assumed that your group will provide a safe venue to run the workshop, plus tables and chairs. This can be discussed further when you make your workshop enquiry.
Participants are advised to wear closed in shoes, and suitable clothing or apron that you do not mind getting ink on. Inks and paint can set permanently on fabric.
In all workshops we use water based inks or paints, so wash up of tools and hands will use soap and water, not potent cleaning chemicals. If oil-based inks are used, we will discuss appropriate clean up of tools during the workshop. In some instances, chemicals are used for wash up of oil-based inks, as are non-toxic cleaning materials.
In some workshops we will use sharp tools. You will be given instruction on how to use the tools, and it will expected that you follow instruction and take care while using them.
Please contact me directly to enquire about availability, workshop options and discuss what it is you want to learn.
Full payment is required to secure your booking. Payment can be made via PayPal or direct deposit.
Please read my Workshop Term and Conditions Cancellation Policy to understand costs around refunds and cancellations.
Below is a selection of photos and feedback from private group workshops. You can see more photos from private group workshops here.
"Thank you so much for the morning. I enjoyed it so much. I loved the feeling of being totally focussed and I am thrilled with my beginner art works." Maree --- "Best morning ever!" Helen
"A very personable approach. So generous with information and materials too. Many thanks Kim for a great workshop. A lovely relaxed and productive day!" Judy --- "I liked that you just showed the technique and we could just do our own thing and that there was no right or wrong print. Excellent workshop." Marilyn
We shared lunch afterwards and I thought you'd like to know that you received the loveliest compliments. Words like "professional, generous, amazing, inspirational and knows what she's doing" abounded. Everyone enjoyed the workshop and 3 hours was just right. We were also very impressed at how organised you are. Your gentle guidance and encouragement gave me so much confidence, and I especially loved the way you would tell us to detach from the outcome. I was so inspired that I did just that this morning on a frame of silk that will become scarves. That advice really freed me up to play without boundaries and this piece is unusual for me. ... abandoned playfulness.
Kim is such a fantastic teacher. Very informative. Explains the subject so it is easy to understand. Very generous with all aspects of the workshop. Lots of fun. I came away, and I can say for all our group, with such energy and enthusiasm. Cannot wait to continue with all the knowledge from this second workshop that I have attended with Kim.
"I am not a beginner and yet I learnt so much. About using tools, mark making, sharpening tools, and doing a rubbing! Had never thought of that as a way to review progress. You are a great teacher, generous with your time and knowledge, patient, and passionate. Not precious about your knowledge and expertise like some teachers. It was great Kim. Thankyou." Julie --- "I hadn’t done Lino print for a long while, and after the workshop, I’m so hooked. And we also got lots of information for places to buy and places to visit for inspiration." Ellen --- "Love that Kim shared her knowledge of the Exhibition at the Gallery, and sharing her passion for her chosen Practice in the Art World. THE best workshop I have attended at the Gallery. Many, many thanks" Joan --- "I feel privileged to have been able to participate in the workshop." Margaret --- "Can’t wait for the next one!" Barbi --- "I had a great experience and look forward to developing my new skill." Sandy

Lovely friendly environment." --- Complements to the cook—lunches were delicious." --- "Most enjoyable." --- "Great 2-day workshop. Excellent tutor. Thank you." --- "Kim is a terrific tutor. She worked very hard throughout and imparted knowledge willingly. Kim fostered our curiosity and enthusiasm for the medium. Food was great!" --- "Thanks Kim, you rock!"
Kim was incredibly thorough with her teachings and she is a wealth of knowledge all things Print Making. She did not hold back any information when asked. Her passion for art is truly refreshing and contagious.
"Great feedback and tips encouraring and lovely atmosphere. Kim is a wealth of knowledge!" Kelly --- "Fast paced and focused. Great explanations and question answering. Lots of materials to play with" Christine --- "Excellent venue and easy parking. Kim is a great teacher and super organised. the workshop was well priced." Sarah --- "The teacher was excellent ........ Kim Herringe was very experienced and was very good at being able to pass on her knowledge to all her students . The setting at the gallery was perfect also and the staff there were very friendly and helpful." Jenni
The Mixed Media Art group at the Buderim Cottage, of which I am leader, invited Kim to conduct two gel plate workshops in October. I found Kim to be professional, her workshop was very well planned and organised. In addition to being an excellent printmaker, she was able to impart her skills and enthusiasm with ease. Her workshops were successful and were universally enjoyed by everyone who attended.
Again I had the opportunity to attend one of Kim's lino printing workshops. She is unbelievable in the knowledge she has and is willing to pass on to you. Kim goes way beyond what would be expected of a tutor. I fully recommend her to anyone thinking of taking up a new art. Kim makes it so easy to learn. Thank you.
