The Snowman, with Christmas card printing by Temple Print Studio

“It was a magical day... and it was on that day I made the snowman.”

Based on the beloved children’s book by Raymond Briggs, The Snowman is a true classic for adults and children everywhere. What if one day you made a snowman, and when you woke up, he had come to life?

Alongside the short film, in partnership with The Auction Collective, Temple Print Studio are putting on a festive lino prints and handmade Christmas card workshop. You’ll learn how to use different cutting tools and techniques to carve out a design from lino before inking up to make a set of cards to give to all your friends and family. All tools and materials will be provided; just bring yourself, a bottle and some ideas or sketches for festive inspiration!

Presented by the Royal Docks in partnership with RAW Labs and The Auction Collective.
