Paper & Printmaking Workshop Series


A series of weekend workshops in Printmaking, Papermaking & Bookbinding.

Best experienced as one course over three weekends, these workshops are designed to give an insight into three related skill sets.  These workshops are available for anyone aged 12 to adult and will take place in the relaxed environment of Room 13 Community Studio in Caol, Lochaber.

Printmaking: 1st & 2nd March                 £58 adult        £38 under 18s

Explore printmaking techniques with visiting artist Sarah Keast. Printmaking is a diverse subject with many skills to master, however, learning just a little can go a long way.  We will look at linocuts, and monoprinting.  Be warned, it can be addictive!

Papermaking: 8th & 9th March               £58 adult        £38 under 18s

Learn how to make paper with recycled materials and naturally occurring materials with Room 13 resident artist Richard Bracken.  This workshop will introduce you to the techniques and allow you to experiment with making your own unique paper.

Bookbinding: 15th  & 16th March            £58 adult        £38 under 18s

Richard Bracken will introduce methods for assembling your own sketchbooks, journals and notepads with just a few simple tools and materials. You will also have the chance to combine all of the skills of printmaking, papermaking and bookbinding during this weekend, giving you, for example, the opportunity to create a book of prints incorporating hand-made paper.

Full course price (all 3 weekends): £160 Adults, £95.00 under 18s

Includes tuition, all materials, and refreshments.

Rotary Club of Esk Valley Fundraising Ceilidh

Our thanks to the Rotary Club of Esk Valley, who are tonight hosting a ceilidh to raise funds for Room 13 International. Members of the club have shown great support for our studios and projects in Scotland and overseas. In 2013 some members attended a presentation from young artists and studio managers responsible for the Room 13 studios in Lochaber, Scotland, and others have previously visited the studio in Caol Youth Centre.

We thank them for their efforts in support of our work and hope everyone has a fantastic evening!
