'Print Friday' is nearly every week from 10am until 12.30. It also includes Paper Craft such as Book Sculpture, Book Making, Journals, Sketchbooks, Card Making and Origami to extend the print into these areas. An ideal way of using the printing produced.

My Own Printing Blocks
The studio has dedicated areas for different activities and displays. The walls, shelves and surfaces are full of inspiration.
