WORKSHOPS

An introduction to Linocut printmaking

Let me share with you the joy of creating your own linocut. It's a relief printmaking process where we carve away material from a block to leave an image, which is then inked with a roller and burnished by hand or run through a press. Finally, the peel and reveal!

 

The 3 hour linocut workshop will include:

Demonstrations of each step in the printmaking process

Guidance and help creating your own lino block: techniques for using the tools, mark making, inking up

Proofing and refining your block (test printing)

Printing a final edition of 5 prints on to blank cards or printmaking paper using professional quality relief printing inks

Refreshments

 

Your lino block and all your own prints will be yours to keep after the workshop. Materials to create one lino block and print an edition of 5 prints are included in the price of your workshop. If you would like to make additional prints or lino designs (time permitting) you can buy more materials during your workshop.

 

There are just 4 spaces in each workshop. Advance booking is essential.

Please note, linocut involves carving by hand and although you do not need perfect coordination, some strength and dexterity is essential (e.g. able to peel potatoes, use a craft knife etc). If you are unsure if this workshop is suitable for you please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss.

Please email me to book your space.

Private Workshops

If you would like to arrange a private workshop either in my home studio or at another venue please get in touch. £35 per hour plus materials. Home studio spaces limited to groups of 4.

Gemma did a workshop for my 4 boys (aged 2 to 10 years). She managed to find a level on which each of them could participate and they all really enjoyed their time and were excited by what they had been able to achieve. I highly recommend Gemma to you.
