Based in Northern Print’s studio and gallery, these sessions will take the exhibition by artist Julian Meredith as a starting point. Julian’s work reflects on our natural world and uses a range of woodcut and relief printing. These tactile and relaxing printmaking activities allow participants to work at their own pace, giving them the skills and support to try out a number of different print processes. and work at their own pace. A range of high-quality printmaking materials will be provided.

Fully-supported by lead artist Cath Hodson these sessions will take place in the light and airy gallery in Ouseburn and access the print studio.
