Drop-in sessions

Non-members are welcome to sample our Drop in sessions alongside our regular members. These sessions cost between £10 to £22 per session, depending on the length of the session. Where space is limited you are advised to phone the number listed against the session to ensure you don’t make a wasted journey.

Print Workshop 2.00pm-4.00pm
Print workshops are held on the first Friday of the Month. There will be room for three people at each session on a first come, first served basis, and it will be necessary to book in advance, and for participants to be paid-up members of Chertsey Artists for insurance purposes.

You can print monoprints, or previously prepared drypoints and etching plates. The inks used will be water based. The session fee will be £10.

If you have not printed before, Martin will give you a tutorial in how to use the press, but basically the sessions will not be tutored although technical help will be given.

To book your place, please contact Martin at martinbhenley@hotmail.com. He will then give you directions to his house in Teddington. Free parking is available in the road.
