Our Gallery has a good selection of original prints, paintings, ceramics and glass from local artists. You can combine a visit with enjoying a nice cup of coffee and cake in the Café or courtyard.
The print studio houses the Victorian Haddon Etching Press formerly owned by Robert Austin (1895 – 1973), It has also some screen printing facilities and provides many resources to undertake classic as well as contemporary printmaking.
Work of the resident artist and printmaker Silke Schelenz can be seen in the Gallery and online www.silkeschelenzstudio.uk
Silke is holding small group workshops which include introductions to printmaking techniques such as etching, screen printing, drypoint, carborundum and gelli plate monotype.
