Printmaking online family workshop with Anna Alcock (am)


Anna will show you how to develop a bold design inspired by nature as William Morris was.  This can be recreated on craft foam to print in two colours, working in lots of pattern and texture. She will show you how to produce good quality prints with basic household equipment.  You will need to get hold of some acrylic paint and PVA glue to mix as 'printing ink'. This activity is suitable for children aged 5 upwards who can do a simple version while older children can make it more complex.

Adult guidance will be needed so please ensure an adult stays present throughout the activity. This is also a requirement for online safeguarding.
