Cancelled Tate Liverpool Workshop

Studio Sessions

Explore printmaking in a series of art making workshops exclusively for Tate Collective

Interested in making art? Book a place on our new Studio Sessions inspired by our current exhibitions and displays including Theaster Gates , Vivian Suter and Op Art in Focus. Each session begins with a special tour around the exhibition followed by a making session in our studio, led by artist Colette Whittington. Working with peers, learn new skills, share ideas, make a new piece of artwork and meet other young people.

Studio Sessions are exclusively for Tate Collective, our free scheme for 16-25 year olds offering discounts and exclusive opportunities across Tate. Sign up and sign in to book your ticket.

Use drawing based techniques to make prints in response to Vivian Suter.

Saturday 29 February, 12.00-16.00
Experiment with wood cuts and 3D printmaking in response to Theaster Gates.

Saturday 28 March, 12.00-16.00
Explore line, pattern and repetition to make prints in response to Op Art in Focus.
