Printmaking Workshops

I work in a 310Sqft unit in an industrial building that serves as my studio. Every Sunday of the week, I will open the doors of my studio to conduct multiple slots of printmaking workshop sessions.

The studio is equipped with basic tools, inking station, and a reliable Holbein Etching Press. Taking into consideration that the workshop venue serves as my personal working space at the same time with limited space capacity, workshop/course participation will have to be capped at a maximum of 3-4 persons per time slot.

Structure

This weekly session is catered for individuals who wish to learn about the medium and methods of printmaking. The workshop is open to both beginners who have no exposure to artistic practices as well as experienced practitioners who wishes to explore other alternative mediums.

The workshops are loosely structured, catered to individual strength, goals, and desired pace. Communication is key, the instructor(s) will sit down and discuss with participants and come out with realistic goals and expectations.
