Join us for an enjoyable day exploring the world of lino cutting and printing, creating a collection of prints and a set of greetings cards during the day.
Lino printing is the traditional form of block printing and has many uses. The process is surprisingly relaxing, and no drawing skills are required, just the keenness to enjoy learning a new skill.
Following an introduction to the craft, our experienced tutor will guide you through the processes from; planning your design, transferring your design to the lino, being shown the safest way to carve your design out of the lino, before then moving onto the rolling of the ink and printing. There will be the opportunity to print your design many times before moving onto printing your set of A6 greetings cards.
This workshop is designed to be a relaxed and friendly day for beginners. As well as learning a new set of skills, there will be time at the end of the workshop to chat about how to develop your new skills and where best to source materials.
Your day will run from 10.00am until 4.00pm. All materials and equipment will be provided, including an apron for you to wear during the workshop. As with all our workshops there will be a pause for a ploughman-style lunch, which is also provided.
Places on this workshop are limited to 8.
