WORKSHOP 1 - The First Cut,
Thursday 21st March 2019 - Full Day
An Introduction to Lino Cutting and Printing
Lino cutting and printing is a very enjoyable process that can be easily explored at home or in the studio. It requires the minimum of specialist equipment. Many of us may remember creating our first lino cut during our Art lessons at secondary school.
On this Thursday, you can join artist and maker Liz Wellby, who lives and works on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire.
With over 20 years experience teaching and tutoring, Liz will guide you through designing, cutting and printing, enabling you to create your own single colour fine art prints.
We will begin the day with a short walk along the banks of the River Meon that runs close to the Long Barn, gaining ideas and inspiration for your prints. Alternatively you may wish to develop a design of your own choosing, by bringing along your own ideas on paper.
This workshop is suitable for beginners and those wishing to either refresh, or further develop their skills, and is designed for a maximum of 12 people.
Please bring along: your wellies, an apron, A5/6 size, ideas or drawings that inspire you, an old magazine to transport your wet prints and a pencil case.
The workshop will include all materials and equipment, refreshments and a delicious homemade lunch that will be served in the barn.
This is a full day workshop from 10am – 4pm and costs £95.
