As part of the Per Mare 200 celebrations Soulisquoy Printmakers and the Pier Arts Centre are presenting a series of printmaking workshops that will each focus on key iconic view points within the town of Stromness and that have inspired artists through the decades. Many of these views can be seen in Portrait of Stromness currently on display at the
Pier Arts Centre. Each day the activities will be aimed at a different group:

Thursday 27 July:
Families 5 years + with accompanying adult

10.00am-4.00pm (lunch break 1-2pm)

Friday 28 July:
14-18 years

10.00am-4.00pm (lunch break 1-2pm)

Saturday 29 July:

10.00am-4.00pm (lunch break 1-2pm)

Workshops are free with all materials provided.
Booking is essential on 01856 850209 or by email

The workshops will be led by artist and printmaker Diana Leslie and will start at the Pier Arts Centre with an introduction to the day.  Each workshop focuses on several key viewpoints – and finish at the Soulisquoy studio where the blocks will be printed. 
Participants will make on-site sketches and drawings from the viewpoints and will then translate these into a simple printmaking block – the prints will be exhibited at the
Pier Arts Centre.
