Half price Autumn workshops

Liz Miller – photopolymer etching

This Autumn, Medway Fine Printmakers have an exhibition ‘Beyond Boundaries‘ at Rochester Art Gallery, featuring the work of Xtina Lamb, Adam Piper and our first artist in residence – Liz Miller. To compliment the show we have a programme of printmaking workshops, and Medway Council are generously supporting us to offer a selection of them at half the normal price.

As well as regular all ages favourite ‘Print Your Own…’, a two-hour Autumn-themed relief printing workshop for children and our popular two day introduction to screen printing for adults, we’re excited to include a new course where you can learn how to create and print photopolymer etching plates with Liz Miller.

The full programme of Autumn 2014 workshops is featured on our courses page, but the following ones at half price can be booked with the links below.
