Fancy learning to print?
Or giving a print class as a gift?


It’s so easy. Just email Simone and you can arrange a Gift Voucher for yourself, a friend/family member or your Special Someone in no time at all.

  • Gift vouchers can be posted or emailed at short notice, whichever method best suits your gift and your timeframe. (And last minute gifts are no problem!)

  • The vouchers are for workshops (usually $160), casual classes ($40 per 3 hour session), 10 visit passes for casual classes ($350) … or any other amount that suits your budget.

  • The vouchers are valid for a year and are very flexible. For example, a $300 voucher could be used for a workshop, some printmaking materials and several casual classes. (Also, a $40 voucher can be used as a part payment towards a full day workshop.)

  • A full day workshop is a great way to start out printmaking - over the course of a day (and including a nice lunch in the cafe Pony & Cole), your Special Someone will get the feel for an entire process. If there is not already a workshop planned in the process they want - see Forthcoming Workshops here - they can select an available date that suits them (these dates can be found half way down the Workshops page) and Simone will start a workshop especially for them. (The workshop always goes ahead, even with only one person booked. Usual workshop numbers vary from 1 to 6 participants.)

  • Places in casual classes are reserved on a “first in, best dressed” basis, so best to book well in advance. Because the casual classes do book out (many weeks have a waitlist), people often like to start with a full day workshop, followed by the occasional casual class, or even a different workshops (in a new process). There are so many ways to print! For more information about casual classes please click here.


So, if you email Simone the following details:

  • Your name and contact details,

  • The name of the person you are giving the voucher to, and

  • The amount of the voucher (as well as whether you’d like the amount written on the front of the voucher, or not)

… She can email you an invoice and gift voucher within 24-36 hours. Perfect for last moment gifts!
