You will be guided through the process in a step by step way in our professional print studio and will take away a selection of your own printed cards with envelopes.

Refreshments, including mince pies, will be provided.


Your Tutor

Rachel aka Bobshaped is a printmaker based in West Yorkshire. She studied engineering before achieving a degree in metalwork and jewellery. After using tools for many years ‘drawing’ with lino cutters was a natural progression into print. This lead to an interest in other types of print, she is currently enjoying screen printing and letterpress. She has taught various print techniques to both adults and children through different organisations including Wakefield art club and Wakefield Cathedral. Pattern, repeats, layers, colours, nature, technology, craft, packaging, architecture and process are some of the things that inform her work. Sometimes there is a bit of humour thrown in for good measure. You can contact her at rachel@bobshaped.com see examples of her work at www.bobshaped.com and follow her on twitter or Instagram as @bobshaped
