lino printing workshops
One day lino printing workshop - date TBA
Join me at one of my printmaking workshops at my studio in Derbyshire, near Chesterfield, where we will be exploring the technique of lino cutting, using easy to find materials and also looking at ways to continue your work once back at home, without the need of a printing press. The day will start with an inroduction to the medium with examples of prints and the original blocks, then after a coffee break we get started!
Students will learn the method and how to produce at least one finished image, progressing onto a second or even third colour if time permits. So we can share materials and ideas effectively, classes are limited to around six people. Classes are fun and relaxed and at the end of each day you will have a series of images to take home for framing or making into greetings cards etc.
The day costs just £70 and includes all materials, plus refreshments (tea, coffee and biscuits).
Materials not included which you will need to bring:
Please bring a packed lunch, also an apron or old shirt, and an idea for what you would like to print, something quite simple works the best. If you don't have a particular idea I can suggest something which would work well.
Please email me if you would like to attend and I will confirm the details.
I look forward to seeing you there!
