Easter Workshop rescheduled

The print workshop we had planned for Easter has unfortunately had to be rescheduled. But do not fear, as we are now running it on Sunday 13th of May! This means it will be the 'Last Chance Saloon' for anyone who missed the May 11th deadline for submitting artwork.
The workshop will be aimed at ages 6-16 with an accompanying adult.
10am-1pm Poster Workshops (£2 per child)
2pm-5pm Bags and Tee Shirts Workshops (£5 per child)
Each participant will have a choice of four designs to enable them to create a Papergirl Cardiff poster, bag or t-shirt.
If you would like to book a place or have any questions about the workshop just email

Easter Workshops.

If you'd like to submit some work for this year's event but missed the last printmaking workshops at The Printhaus, don't worry, on Tuesday 10th April we'll be holding more!

The morning session will run from 10am until 1pm and concentrate on screen printing posters. You will have the opportunity to design your own backgrounds and then print onto them, using pre-prepared screens. Paints and pencils will be available to use, but please feel free to bring any of your own materials too. This is an excellent introduction to the method and medium of printing. The cost of this session is £2 per child and £4 per adult. (If you're accompanying your kids you don't have to pay)

The afternoon session will run from 2pm to 5pm and print T-Shirts and bags. Using the same designs as before you will be able to make your very own tee's and tote bags to take away with you. The cost of this session is £5 per child and £7 per adult. To book a place on either of these workshops please email Sophie at The Printhaus on

We had some fantastic feedback from our last workshops and some fantastic posters were made. It's a great way to have a fun, creative morning or afternoon and make some art for Papergirl Cardiff 2012 too. I'm looking forward to it; already got a little collage type piece in mind for my poster! Hope to see you there.
