About Ways into Abstraction: Printmaking Workshop

Inspired by the exhibition 'Beneath the Surface' at the City Art Centre, join artist Tessa Asquith-Lamb for a printmaking workshop using simple monoprinting and relief methods. Making use of natural materials such as plant forms, stone strata, and seashells, we will consider the beauty in small things and develop initial sketches into abstract prints.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Ways into Abstraction: Printmaking Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
