The Craft Barn
The Craft Barn is a community arts & crafts venue in the heart of the village of Hadfield, Glossop, Derbyshire. The former grain store and workshop has been beautifully restored to provide a bright & welcoming space for creative activities and they have kindly allowed me to run some of my printmaking workshops there.
We will be working upstairs in a large room which runs the length of the building with high ceilings and plenty of light. There is a small kitchen area where tea and coffee can be made.
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.

There is a large free parking area at the back of the building. Workshops will start at 10am and finish around 4pm. There are a handful of cafes, pubs and shops including a Tesco Express nearby or feel free to bring your own lunch with you. All materials for the workshop will be provided.
Please feel free to bring your own found images including images from magazines, photographs or anything your will feel inspired to work from including your own drawings and I will bring plenty of things for you to work from if you are stuck for ideas.
Please bring an apron.
