TPG Workshops This Month

This month we have 3 exciting workshops available to attend. If you would like to attend one of them please email us to book your spot. There are limited spaces available, and bookings are only made once workshops costs are paid in full.

The workshop will cover the basics of income tax for artists along with the records you will need to make submitting your tax return as easy as possible. The workshop will include practical examples and a Q&A session.

Tuesday 22 February 9:30-11:30am, via zoom.

This workshop introduces the artist to the technique of screen-printing. Beginner techniques such as handmade stencils and monotypes will be taught and will lead into intermediate techniques which address photographic stencils and basic colour separation methods. Each attendant will be encouraged to produce one artwork using the basic methods and one artwork using the intermediate methods.

In-person workshop: 15/16/17 February , Online workshop: 22/23/24 February
