Start the New Year with your creative juices flowing by making some art for you home. We found this fun Risograph Image Making Workshop at Hato Press in London. Learn the techniques of riso-printing and collage in a 2.5 hr session.

We’ll take you behind the scenes at our printing studio, packed with different paper stock, riso drums and colourful ink tubes. As a group we will perform a test exercise on riso-printing and work through a few art production techniques. Then it’s time to experiment with your individual artwork using a range of materials, including our pre-made templates, inks, stamps, clippings, charcoal and many more. We will be on hand to give you advice and tips on your artwork, and then we’re off to the live printing action of your master creation!

Next workshop Jan 5th [ £45 ]

It’s coming up to that time of year again. The ‘C’ word is getting closer.

The wreath is a symbol of Christmas and one of the first decorative items to start appearing on homes in the lead up to the big day.

Beautifully crafted ones aren’t cheap to buy so if you want to invest and have the satisfaction of making your own why not try a wreath making class? Be taught by the professionals and come away with a beautiful wreath ready to adorn your front door.
