NEWS FROM HALF ACRE STUDIOS:
Booking is now open for all courses in 2022, including adult Printmaking courses, Saturday Art Club, Summer School and Family Summer Art Workshops.
In Autumn 2022 we hosted our first Adult Printmaking Course at Half Acre. A successful week exploring the Monotype and chine colle. It was really exciting to see our press working hard and the varied work made over the week. Bookings are now open for Printmakimg: Exploring the Monotype on the 9th-11th of May.
Due to growing demand we expanded our Saturday Clubs into two groups, a younger age group (7-11) in the morning and an older group (12-16) in the afternoon. This means more time for individual tuition and the ability to see even more children at Half Acre.
PRINTMAKING AT HALF ACRE STUDIOS 2022:
We have a mixture of 4 day courses and 1 day courses planned for over the year, offering Drypoint, Monoprinting and Collagraphs. Click on the links below to see full details on the website:

BUILD YOUR OWN COURSE!
Fancy a week in North Cornwall doing printmaking or sculpture in a working artists studio? Are you a group of friends who want a creative holiday together? On a family holiday and want the cousins to have a fun day out together?
Is there a course that interests you but you can't make the dates? We are always open to suggestions! Get in contact if you would like to talk about organising a bespoke course at a time that suits you!
To make it cost effective we suggest coming as a group of 4+. We will limit numbers to a maximum of 6 students for printmaking and 10 for sculpture to allow lots of space and individual tuition. Materials and tuition included in the cost.
