Holiday Workshop: Print Your Trash

22 February, 10am–1pm

Join artist Rachel McGivern to create your own ‘collograph’ prints using everyday objects you can find at home. Be inspired and discover the amazing and varied printing techniques and artworks used by artists in the house at Kettle’s Yard.

This event has passed. £15 (£5 Open House community card holders)

Have fun and get messy in the studio and create your own collograph plate and then use this to make your own Kettle’s Yard inspired prints!

This Holiday Workshop is for children aged 7–11 years only. We do not require parents or guardians to remain during the workshop as participants will be warmly supported by our trained artists and staff.

What Our Visitors Say

It’s amazing how creative we can be when given the opportunity. Thank you Kettle’s Yard.


Thank you for this event! My family loved it (as with all the family studio events you usually organise).


Our girls had a lovely time and our eldest, who often struggles with unfamiliar environments and tasks, settled right in so much that they didn’t want to leave at the end. The coordinators were great. We’ll be back!
