“Ding Dong Merrily on High”...our Christmas workshops are coming! We can’t wait to spend a few wonderful winter weeks getting into the festive spirit with our cosy Christmas arts and crafts. These workshops are a highlight in our arts calendar.
This November and December we’ll be creating some fabulous seasonal artwork in our Christmas Workshops. These workshops are a particularly fun thing to do with family and friends, as all ages are welcome above the age of nine years.

Print and Mulled Wine Christmas Special | Thursday 5th December | 7.30 - 9.30pm Come and join our very popular night where you will enjoy a festive mulled wine whilst learning how to lino cut. This is perfect for a Christmas night out!
Christmas Printmaking Workshop | Sunday 8th December | 10.30 - 1.30 Christmas Cards, wrapping paper and tags - print them all! In this workshop you will have a chance to work on small Lino plates and print them onto different Christmas accessories. You can choose to use the technique of Mono Printing or Lino. Expect to go home with about x4 cards, 2 sheets of wrapping paper and 5-10 tags.
These workshop are great for those who would like to give something a little special to their friends and family. Handmade items are always the best and in this workshop we aim to create that very special gift. You will be taught by our very own experienced printmaking teacher who can take you through the process of designing and making your very own prints. We have a shelf full of books with ideas and imagery to get lost in, but of course you’re very welcome to bring some of your own if you already have a piece in mind. Our teacher will then go through the steps to successfully print onto your items.
What’s the atmosphere like? These workshops are a particularly fun thing to do with family and friends, as all ages are welcome above the age of nine years. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal, allowing you the space for your ideas to flourish.
Can do these dates? We offer these session for groups of 4 or more if you would like to book on different days.
Ho Ho Ho see you there!
“The whole staff at Lavender Leonardos were extremely helpful, and we particularly enjoyed spending time with Luke, who was very supportive throughout the process. Best of all, we were able to produce our own artwork in a very professional way, leaving us with great memories of this wonderful experience” Pete
