Lino cutting and printing is a very enjoyable process that can be explored at our kitchen tables and requires the minimum of specialist equipment. Many of us may remember creating our first lino cut during our Art lessons at secondary school. If you are looking to learn a new creative skill, but need a process that can be “picked up and put down” and fitted around a busy life, this may well be the technique you have been looking for.
Join us in our inspirational thatched barn on the edge of the South Downs Way, to release your inner lino cutter. Working from your chosen images or a range of ideas available on the day, this workshop will introduce you to one colour lino cutting and printing. This is the perfect introduction to this addictive print process, with a particular focus on how you may continue developing your skills in your own home.
However, if you have previous experience of lino cutting, but would benefit from a few prompts and reminders, it’s likely that you would be able to progress quicker and develop a two colour lino print.
You will cover developing ideas into designs, safe cutting techniques, alongside successful hand printing. Single colour prints can also be developed by printing onto coloured backgrounds and exploring collage techniques.
We will be joined by artist and maker Liz Wellby, who lives and works on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire. With over 25 years experience teaching and tutoring, Liz will guide you through this addictive printing process, enabling you to create a range of outcomes that will be much admired by family and friends.
This workshop is suitable for a range of abilities and creative experiences. Places are limited to just 10.
Please bring along: an apron, A5 drawings/photos/images that inspire you, an old magazine to transport wet work home and your lunch.
The workshop will include materials and use of equipment, delicious homemade refreshments served throughout the day; runs from 10 - 4pm and costs £75
