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 have created a number of single colour lino prints and now feel ready to challenge yourself further, this is the workshop for you. However, if you are new to the process, you may prefer to focus on the skills relating to one colour cutting and printing and work at a slightly slower pace.
Working from your chosen images, artist, teacher and maker, Liz Wellby, will guide you through this one day workshop, introducing you to 2 colour lino cutting and printing. You will cover developing ideas into designs, re cap safe cutting methods and the two stages of cutting and hand printing.
Liz Wellby will host this workshop at her home studio, The Slipper Studio. The venue is beautifully presented with handcrafted workbenches and a wood burner, with views into the village.

Time stopped! The day whizzed by but I achieved so much. Liz is an excellent teacher, very generous with her attention and willingness to share her print makers secrets. I came away with prints I am pleased with and the confidence to keep going no make even better ones.
