Walk, Draw & Print on the Suffolk Coast

Walk, Draw and Print is a two day course combining exploration of the Suffolk coast with a sketch book and the opportunity to develop your drawing into a print.

The course is centered on the paper-works studio with opportunities to explore the nearby Suffolk coastline.

With two presses available and the course limited to just two students you are assured of having great access to the equipment.

You will be exploring contrasting coastal landscapes including North Denes Beach and Southwold Harbour, recording your observations in sketchbooks and then returning to the studio to work these up into prints using either linocut or drypoint techniques.

The weekend will include:

Outdoor sketching. Picnic lunch on a house boat in Southwold Harbour. Working up your ideas in the studio. Choosing your print medium. Making your printing plate. Printing your finished design using a professional press.

Please note that you should bring stout outdoor shoes and weatherproof clothing. The course does include walking over rough ground, access to a boat from a pontoon and stepped access to the first floor studio. Please contact them prior to booking if you have any mobility requirements.

Previous experience is not essential.. All materials and lunch* will be provided on both days. The course will be led by Lisa Hurcum and Hugh Davies. If you require accommodation they have two double rooms available at paper-works please contact them if you require accommodation with your course booking.

* Lunch will be vegetarian/pescatarian using locally sourced products where possible. Please advise them in advance of any specific dietary requirements.
