Andy Black, ‘Garden 2’. Pen and ink drawing, 2014.

Having just celebrated Crescent Arts’ 35th Anniversary we are delighted to announce a season of fascinating and focused workshops that are open to all abilities.

Workshops primarily run throughout daytimes on weekends but Steven Potter’s ‘Screenprinting for the Busy Bee’ workshops run on Tuesday evenings throughout October.

Safe Hard Ground Etching
Saturday 20th September, 10.00 am – 4.00 pm

Dawn Brooks teaches participants to safe etch using non-toxic materials. The hard ground allows for the production of linear imagery and produces a pen-like line, encouraging the creation of bold work.

Saturday 27th September, 10.00 am – 4.00 pm
£30 members, £40 non-members
Susan Timmins and Karen Thompson lead this workshop. Experiment with the art of print in two and three dimensions! A highly experimental workshop using some unusual methods and materials.
