Adult workshops: Printmaking
The Shipley's adult creative workshops are back! These all-day workshops will introduce you to creative skills and art forms led by professional artists. Workshops will take place from 10am to 3pm, where you will work with one artist in the morning and another artist in the afternoon. In this workshop you will explore different methods of printmaking including monoprinting and Japanese woodblock printing.

Please bring lunch with you. Drinks will be provided.

Pui Lee

During this exciting taster workshop, you will be introduced to the traditional Japanese art of woodblock printing. You will learn the skills to transfer a simple image of an ammonite (a fossil which can be found in Shipley Art Gallery's collections) to Japanese plywood, carve out two small colour separation blocks in relief and register your multi-bock image using the traditional "kento" registration system for printing onto paper with water-based inks/paints. Widely known for its mindful and meditative process, you will be sure to discover your creative side with all the endless possibilities that mokuhanga has to offer! No experience is necessary.

Based in Gateshead, Pui Lee is a British-born Hakka Chinese artist and arts educator, working throughout the UK. Trained in a multitude of disciplines, her artistic practice is wide-ranging and she works using an interdisciplinary approach across both traditional and contemporary 2D and 3D artforms.

Shiori Naruse

In this workshop, we will create a series of one-off monoprints exploring landscapes as well as looking closely at autumn foliage and colours. The final piece will be a composition of unique nature-inspired motifs that symbolise a specific positive meaning to you. Workshop led by Shiori Naruse, founder of design label Naruse Design, an artist and printmaker based in the North East of England.
