The Print Shed


Artist owned Dedicated Printmaking Workshop set in delightful rural location six miles west of Hereford city. The Print Shed is suitable for monoprint, collagraph, carborundum print, etching, lino block, solar plate printing, drypoint and other related processes.  The peaceful setting will allow you some 'metime'.

The Print Shed, housed in thoughtfully converted outbuildings offers

  • specialist print studio
  • drawing studio
  • printmaking courses
  • exhibition opportunities
  • technical help
  • specialist on site framing facility

The use of safe and environmentally friendly materials is strongly promoted.  There are two studio areas, one houses a  Relief Imperial Press - an 1834 chunk of cast iron can be used for lino block, for wood engraving and letterpress images.  It has also been successfully used to block print on to fabric. The second area holds a large Rollaco Etching Press. There is a useful  little kitchen area, a separate area with ventilation for using white spirit. There are toilet facilities.

Wellington village is hosting an Art Exhibition Saturday 29th, Sunday 30th April, and Monday 1st May.  This is to be held at the Wellington Community Centre, Wellington, HR48AZ. I am happy to be showing alongside some of Herefordshire's great artists, my etchings and linocut prints will be on display together with a fab selection of colourful greetings cards all of which feature my own images.  

We are busy behind the scenes on the Saturday morning hanging our work, the show opens at 10.30am and continues until 5pm.  On the Sunday 10am - 5pm and Monday it's 10am - 4pm. There will be refreshments and lots to look at, treat yourself or your friends to some unique original art. The profits will be going to St Margaret’s Church, Wellington, friends of the church are engaged in fundraising for major re-ordering of the west end of the church. I am sure it will prove to be a really interesting and inspirational project. Image : Field's Place, Etching by Jill Barneby
