KIN.DER Print Studio
KIN.DER Print Studio is based in Glossop, Derbyshire and is run by artists Lauren Riley and Richard Knox. A former gas works building, it is now used by various local businesses including Kin.der. It provides a bright & welcoming space for creative activities and they have kindly allowed me to run some of my printmaking workshops there.
The workshops take place in KIN.DER and often Richard and Lauren will be there working on their own creations. The workshop is an inspirational space and is used for many different printmaking workshops and more.
A maximum of 6 people allowed per workshop at this venue.
I did the linocut workshop on a Sunday in Hadfield with Lucy Gell. I would very much recommend Lucy’s workshops. I had a fantastic time. The group is not too large and therefore we’ve got plenty of opportunities to get Lucy’s guidance. Lucy teaches with a lot of enthusiasm, expertise, patience and, despite not drawing, not doing any particular craft nor arts of any sort, I could make a really lovely print: Lucy knows how to guide, advise and reassure. The workshop is also excellent value: spending so many hours with an artist and going back home with 12 cards we’ve made are really worth the price asked. I loved that day; it was a real break and felt rewarding. I have booked the same workshop and will do it again in a months time! Many thanks Lucy for your generosity and passion.
I shall see you again end of November! Have a lovely few week and thank you again for a really enjoyable day on Sunday.
