Pattern & Print with David Skinner

Wallpaper maker, David Skinner, will introduce the children to some of the techniques traditionally used to make hand-printed wallpaper, including block printing, stencilling and roller printing. 

We will have fun learning how to make repeat patterns, and participants will take home pieces of hand-printed (and foot-printed!) paper which they have made. We will be using environmentally-friendly, non-toxic paint. Large t-shirts will be provided for protecting clothing, but please do not come in your very best clothes as paint does not always wash out. 

Suitable for children aged 6 - 12, this event is free but places are limited so booking is essential. Bookings can be made via Eventbrite.

Due to the popularity of these workshops, should you subsequently be unable to attend, we would be grateful if you can notify the workshop co-ordinator by email at

Please wear old clothes and arrive 10 minutes prior to workshop start time. Please be advised the parents/guardians must remain with children for the duration of the workshop.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
