Make Art and Donate with Colin Blanchard

Tomorrow, Saturday 12th December, Colin Blanchard will be in the gallery demonstrating print making from 11am to 1pm.

Colin has produced a new linocut specially for this event (photographed below). Visitors to the gallery will be able to make their own print from Colin's linocut - perfect to take home and use as a special Christmas card. You will also be able to talk to Colin about his innovative printmaking techniques and see some of the equipment that he uses.

There is no charge for making your own print but Colin will be asking for donations to the Cumbrian Flood Appeal Fund.

The linocut will be printed on top of a screen print. Here is a video of Colin printing screen printed backgrounds in preparation for his demo here in the gallery.

We will be serving mulled cider or spiced apple juice and our coal fires will be lit to drive away any winter chills so it should be a very enjoyable Saturday in the gallery. Look forward to seeing you all there.
