THE STUDIO

The studio is set up for all kinds of block and intaglio printing from line to viscosity colour etching.
Plates can be made using Nitric acids and non toxic solutions of Copper Sulphate.
It is equipped with a cast iron nipping press for lino and wood block printing, a 26” x 48” Rochat etching press and a fume cupboard for acids. Papers, plates, inks and cleaning materials are included or chargeable as indicated per course. Health & Safety issues are taken very seriously and the studio is covered by public liability insurance.
The courses are taught and supervised by Sandra who is an experienced, enthusiastic and fully qualified Lecturer and has taught Printmaking and Fine Art to  students from beginner to Degree Level for more than 25 years.
The atmosphere is informal with a range of approaches taught to a high standard.

The studio is situated 6 miles south of Bath in the delightful village of Norton St Philip, within easy reach of the galleries and museums of Bath, Bristol, Frome, Salisbury and Wells. Reasonably priced B & B is available (see suggestion) in and around the village and good pub food can be found at the historic pubs, The George and the Fleur de Lys.
Small group and individual tuition is available for all levels at daily, weekend and weekly rates.
Open workshops for more experienced artists  are also available.
