  • Printmaker of nearly 4 decade’s experience from Gloucestershire
  • Has worked in Woodcut, Wood Engraving, Etching and Engraving
  • Peter’s workshops have been consistently popular here at Higham for a long time

Printmaking is a fantastic course that leads often to a lifelong passion that always welcomes new students.

Those who feel that cutting wood is too heavy, we have the slightly easier cutting involved with the alternative of lino-cut printmaking with Clare Melinsky.
