sharing artist skills in shetland

Since Gaada started, an important part of what we do involves sharing our studios specialist skills within our island community. One of the ways we do this is by regularly opening our doors to the Shetland public through bookable printmaking workshops.


Currently there are no public printmaking facilities in Shetland so we feel it is incredibly important to share our facilities and knowledge whenever possible. To date we have run risograph and screen printing workshops, and aim to add to this offering as we grow.

We also develop private workshops for community groups and individuals with specific requirements or projects in mind. Please get in touch and we’ll be happy to discuss accommodating your requirements.
