Join this enjoyable printmaking workshop with Lime lead visual artist Colette Whittington to create a collection of large-scale flags for display across the trust to mark our Create. Connect.Unwind Arts and Wellbeing festival in May 2022. Help us create that festival feel with bright and eye-catching new artworks!

No prior skills or experience necessary!

Colette Whittington is an artist, printmaker and educator who has been leading printmaking workshops for over 15 years in colleges and healthcare settings, as well as at Tate Liverpool. She has collaborated on projects including ‘Afro Punk’ at Wolverhampton Art Gallery for Black History Month, Protest Print at Liverpool Quakers for the WEA, and ‘The Human Library’ at Sefton Libraries to name the most recent ones. Colette, like us here at Lime HQ, is mad about all things ‘print’ and is a strong advocate in the democracy of printmaking, believing that the process of printing offers great rewards, and joy for all, from the experienced artist to the complete beginner alike. https://www.instagram.com/colette_whittington
