Printmaking Open Studio Scheme (31st May-21st June)

Rural Arts Thirsk
Friday 31st May

(Fridays) 31st May, 7th June, 14th June, 21st June

An open printmaking studio for those with some experience who would like to develop their own individual work in a mutually supportive environment. The print studio will operate in 4 week blocks (£12 per session) and will be available to book at £48 for 4 weeks. This will not be a taught course, therefore it is especially suited to those who have already taken part in a Rural Arts printmaking workshop. Work spaces on the day will be limited to 10 printmakers.

Try lots of different forms of printmaking such as lithography, etching and collagraph. Feel free to bring your own materials to use. We will provide basic equipment, but encourage you to bring your own tools.

Health and safety requirements regarding the use of materials and own equipment will remain paramount at all times.

There will be limited storage for unfinished work within the studio.

For more information please email


Please note: You will not receive physical tickets. Please use your email order confirmation as proof of purchase.

Fridays) 31st May, 7th June, 14th June, 21st June Tickets Available: 10
Ticket 48.00

Rural Arts gives you the opportunity to learn or develop an artistic skill in a relaxed, creative environment. We want your day with us to be relaxed, offering you a bit of escapism and the chance to get to know like-minded people (plus there’s the bonus of getting to take something you have lovingly made home with you!).

Get to know others in the group whilst enjoying a drink in our Café before heading through to the studio to start getting creative! The Café will be open throughout the day for you to get drinks and delicious lunches and cakes. Visit The Rural Arts Café page to view our menu.

Please bring an apron.
