Family Workshops

The activities listed below are fun printmaking workshops held at INTRA and designed to be enjoyed by adults and children together. We run them during festivals, special events and school holidays. We also offer educational printmaking classes for young people.

Booking
If you are able to get a group of four or more people together, you can request a workshop to run after school, in holidays, or at weekends. We would normally offer the class to the public too. If there are no other takers we can still run the class for your group. The price is approx £10 per participant for family bookings made on request.

Press leaves or found objects and textures into the plate, print through stencils and have a whole lot of fun together in this family workshop led by artist Xtina Lamb.
