    Q. How does RHP compare
with other similar art insƟtuƟons
like West Dean?

    Very favourably! Although we
don’t have any accommodaƟon
like West Dean we can
recommend some good local
B&Bs for people who are visiƟng
us from outside the region. Our
courses are run by arƟsts using
quality materials and will teach
you all the skills you need to know
as a beginner. We also have a
membership scheme for people
who want to use the workshop
during open access to produce
their own work and we offer
supervised pracƟce to people who
may feel they are not ready to
become members yet.

WASHING UP ROLLERS

A gadget you can make for the convenient handling
of washing and maintaining machine rollers...

 THE BASE AND UPRIGHT PIECES are made of
 wood. The dimensions depend on the size of the
 parƟcular rollers being handled. Once the rollers are
 removed from the machine, it is only necessary to
 rest the spindles in the Vs of the uprights and hold a
 cleaning rag against them while turning the spindles.

    A metal tray of suitable size placed below the
 roller would further facilitate maƩers. If the upright
 were made of the correct height so that the roller
 dipped in the tray, it would only be necessary to
 turn the roller and it would wash itself.
