The place for original handmade prints and printmaking courses taught by Carol Nunan

COURSES

The Courses – my teaching philosophy

I consider myself to be a facilitator, allowing others discover their own creative self. It is a symbiotic relationship; we learn together, from each other. The emphasis is on process not product. You are encouraged to step out of your comfort zone, take risks, learn from each other. You must be willing to ‘make mistakes’. In doing so you’ll learn so much more. I live by what I teach. I am always testing my own practice, always on the look out for new ways to develop as an artist and as a tutor. I’ve been teaching printmaking to all age groups and abilities for over 15 years.

I’m always open to creative collaborations that push the boundaries of printmaking and other creative media.

“For an in-the-moment booking, that was one WOW of an afternoon. The prints are on my carpet now, pestering me out of the corner of my eye to work into them…with them…”come and play…”

Testimonials

I recently spent 5 days with Carol – the first 2 on her Explosive Colour Course then 3 in her lovely studio working on collagraphs, with support and tuition as and when I needed it. This all worked out brilliantly and I had a really enjoyable time, made even better by how well Carol and Chris took care of me as their B&B guest (plus lunch and dinner), with good food and good conversation. They even collected me from and took me back to the station.

From M. Brennan of Limerick who isn’t on FB.
“I loved the course ‘Prints with Attitude’ it was all I expected and more and it opened up the endless possibilities of Printmaking to me. Carol was very generous with her expertise. I took a chance on the course when I saw her beautiful print work on her website. I availed of the accommodation available at Carol’s house which was excellent as was the food served for both breakfast and dinner. I was made feel very welcome at her home in the picturesque town of Hexham approximately 25 minutes from Newcastle Airport. Carol even picked me up from the airport an added bonus.
I look forward to a return visit shortly to avail of the facilities at her beautiful well lit studio which is only a few minutes drive from Hexham.”
