Learn new skills at The Ropewalk
What better way to embrace autumn by either learning a new skill or improving an old one at The Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber?
This autumn, the day workshops at The Ropewalk offer a wide range of crafts in a programme beginning in October and ending in December with a particular emphasis on print-making in various forms to coincide with the staging of the Eight British International Mini Print Exhibition.
Martin Maywood, Christopher Roantree, Henrietta Corbett, Angela Lindsley and Tim Needham will all be leading print workshops both before and during the Mini Print exhibition which takes place between October 20th and November 18th.
“The autumn programme has an emphasis on print-making from mezzotint engraving through to collographs,” said Richard Hatfield of The Ropewalk.
“Christopher Roantree will also be returning for a weekend workshop on etching at the end of October,” he went on.
The Glass Lightcatchers workshop with Gill Hobson, which is always over-subscribed returns and there will also be an introduction to jewellery making, a workshop which show how to knit with wool and wire to make colourful bird brooches and how to make minature embroidered shoes.
A Christmas theme runs through the last two workshops of the year on December 8.
Alison Walling will be showing how to make Christmas Wreaths which will last for many years and only need to be freshened up with new greenery to decorate the house at any time of the year and Porcelain Angels with Jill Ford who will show participants how to make a beautiful unique porcelain angel with patterned robes and textured wings, finished with white glaze which will be a perfect addition to the Christmas table .
