Creative October

We're so excited to be involved with the 'Creative October' events going on across Nottingham during that month. Creative October is about celebrating, recognising and developing the creative sector and working towards Nottingham's identity as a 'creative' city. So far, there are about 40 individual events/initiatives taking place in the city throughout October; here's details of our workshops for that month:

Creative October Design Workshops, Lace Inspired

Our wonderful Lace Inspired Workshops include Ringtons Tea & Handmade Traditional Biscuits & Cake and all materials & equipment you will need.

Nicki Dennet Collagraph Printmaking, £40
Saturday 16th October, 11am - 5pm

Make your own beautiful collagraph prints to take home. These can be made into cards for a special someone or mounted and framed for your wall.

Throughout the morning you will create your own printing plates using carborundum grit to give random or painterly areas, scratching and ripping the surface to give depth and tone and fine drypoint lines to give detail if you wish. In the afternoon you will print the plates using colourful water based inks. Collaged papers can be incorporated at this stage adding extra texture and interest to your print.

Lucianna Gallucci Ceramic Workshops, £20.00 each
