5 Young Peoples’ Workshops

Our courses are designed for those aged 16 and above. If you are interested in one of our courses but are under 16 you may be interested in developing a young person’s workshop with us. Many schools find it useful for teachers to gain experience by working with a professional printmaker. They also recognise the benefit of students getting to work alongside professional artists who can help them build strong portfolios and become more confident in their arts practice for exams and university entrance.

We have a lot of experience of working with secondary level schools and further education colleges to help students prepare for and to enhance their GCSE and A level or other exam portfolios.

Ropewalk Print Workshop has a commitment to looking after the environment. This includes minimising the environmental impacts of our courses and continually monitoring, researching and improving our printmaking practice and using this research to educate and inform others.
