Richenda currently teaches adult printmaking courses at Ochre Print Studios in Guildford specialising in relief printmaking: linocuts, woodcuts and goetz technique. www.ochreprintstudio.co.uk
Working freelance, workshops are also taught in schools, colleges, and galleries working with various organisations including the Arts Council of England.
The workshops offer an insight into printmaking techniques and a life of the artist. Where possible, trips are made to London galleries to view first hand the influence of printmaking.
Workshops are available to suit all ages and capabilities.
Previous workshops have covered mono-printing, etching, collographs and lino printing and woodcut, working in various institutions. Richenda has worked with primary, secondary school children, adults with disabilities and young offenders.
All professional printmaking equipment is brought into the classroom / gallery including a portable press, etching inks, rollers and paper.
In advance of the workshop Richenda will discuss the proposed lesson plan and where necessary present back up notes for participants and staff.
