Workshops & Teaching

Letterpress Printing

I am the lucky owner of two Adana tabletop printing presses for letterpress printing. I love experimenting with vintage metal and wooden type and printing my own stationery and notebooks. I offer group workshops making greetings cards and spiral bound notebooks and also take my press on tour to demonstrate at events and exhibitions. In Edinburgh, I offer letterpress workshops through Arienas Collective, see their website for upcoming dates.
“Brilliant course, I really enjoyed it. The setting is wonderful and very welcoming. Lou was a great teacher and obviously knew her stuff. There was an amazing choice of cards and type, as well as the 2 lovely presses themselves to use. I love letterpress and I now feel confident about progressing further myself.” – Letterpress Course review on CraftCourses
I can also offer special letterpress experiences for those in the Edinburgh area, for you to design and print your own menus, invitations, thank you cards or business cards. Contact me for more information.

Screen Printing

I can offer screen printing workshops for up to six people using small screens. I run workshops in screen printing using paper stencils, photo emulsion stencil making, screen printing on fabric, screen printing with gold leaf and repeating pattern screen printing. If you’re in or near Edinburgh, I offer screen printing workshops with Arienas Collective and I can arrange corporate, group workshops, demonstrations and 1-1 tuition.

Art workshops and 1-1 sessions for adults

I work with a number of people and groups to offer art sessions for relaxation and inspiration. I teach acrylic painting, watercolour, drawing and sketching, lino printing, dressmaking, rag rugging, textile recycling and mandala drawing for relaxation.
