LEAF PRINTING WORKSHOP
Make monoprints with found autumn leaves with Victoria Glover from The Cyan Studio. Explore and walk around the Northern Quarter to find fallen leaves to bring back to Manchester Craft and Design Centre to create cards and pictures. This is a simple process which involves Gelli plates being inked up to create monoprints, the leaves are then transferred to paper. This workshop is suitable for all ages. There will be leaves available, but please do bring any you like along!
Bring a book, take a book! This is a great way for people to find out about new books and grow their book collection without having to pay.
