The Tower St Print Project, set up and managed by community interest company Oyster Community Press, is running two events over February 10-11 and March 10-11.

Participants will learn about five different printmaking techniques during the weekend ‘bootcamps’ and have a go at using some of them to design, create, carve and print their own artwork to take home.

Director Alison Smyth said: “Taking part in an arts activity is proven to boost health and wellbeing which is why The Tower St Print Project is keen to help people get into good creative shape this year, by putting them through their printmaking paces at the new weekend bootcamps.”
