We are a Community Interest arts organisation and we teach people printmaking. We deliver workshops for the public, create community projects and exhibitions of printmaking, provide rural pop-up workshops and run a schools programme. Printmaking is easy to learn and gives good results quickly so people feel confident in their ability to be creative, in a short space of time. Our mission is to reach out to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to engage them in meaningful, enjoyable and affordable arts activities that improve self-confidence, increase feelings of self-worth and provide people with new skills that will give them a better quality of life. To fulfil our mission we have developed a suite of unique social prescribing programmes for disadvantaged people in partnership with local charities, GP's, local authorities and the D.W.P. These provide us with a creative way to address issues such as loneliness, unemployment, depression and poor health.
