Classes and workshops with Jane Duke

These small and friendly printmaking classes are held in my home studio in York (see the map at the bottom of the page). All materials and refreshments are included in the cost; all you need to bring is an apron or old shirt. The set of lino or wood cutting tools you use will be yours to keep* and additional materials can be purchased on the day to take home so you can continue developing your new skills.

DATES FOR 2018 COMING LATER IN THE YEAR

How to book your place

  1. Please check the workshop descriptions below to see if there is already a date open for booking for your choice of workshop. If there is and it is a day that suits you then that's great! Just go ahead and click on the Book Now link to reserve and pay for your place.
  2. If no dates are open for booking, or you can't do those dates, please choose a date from the suggestions listed and let me know your choice using the form under the workshop descriptions. Once I know someone wants to attend on a particular date I will look at opening that date for booking.
  3. I will contact you to let you know you can now reserve and pay for your place.
  4. Please note: all workshops run subject to receiving enough bookings, so if there is already a date taking bookings then that workshop is more likely to run than a new date you choose (unless several of you are booking together) - so where possible please opt for an existing date.
  5. If you are booking a place as a gift, please ask for a printable gift certificate to be sent to you with your booking confirmation   

Suggested dates will change according to availability. If you'd like to hear about new dates as they are added, please subscribe to the newsletter or follow me on Facebook or Twitter through the links at the bottom of the page.
