Participants are encouraged to bring their own images (as a 12 x 12cm design) or reference materials and a needle-tool if possible. Participants can purchase additional high-quality paper from Umbrella on the day, however time restrictions may not allow for more than four prints per person. All other materials will be provided. While led by Lynn, the workshop will also be supported by experienced printmakers from the Umbrella Makerspace Access Group (UMAG).
