Aspex Gallery have a number of great workshops coming up and this one really caught the eye, you can learn the basics of letterpress printing in an introductory arts workshop led by artist and printmaker Jordan Baines. On the 9th December participants will learn of the traditional techniques employed by historical and contemporary printmakers and will then put this knowledge to the test – creating their own Christmas cards, prints and bespoke wrapping paper – perfect gifts and accessories for the festive period!
Jordan Baines is a printmaker and illustrator located in Southsea and describes his practice as ‘experimental’ and takes inspiration from the texture found in nature and animals. Each booking on the workshop comes with a choice of hot drink and mince pie and lunch is also available to purchase from the Aspex cafe partners Port Coffee on the day.
The event will take place on Sunday 9 December, 11.00 – 15.00hrs and the workshop costs just £35.00 per person. Concessionary tickets are available (priced at £30.00) for Aspex Artist Associates and Portsmouth Leisure Card holders. To book on the workshop simply CLICK HERE to book. Eventbrite booking includes an online fee. Please note that bookings will not be refunded within 24 hours of the workshop. Please book via this Eventbrite page.
