Figure out this skill together! A linocut & print kit with everything needed for 2 people to do together! You will also receive access to my YouTube tutorial videos, to learn at your own pace. As an Artist myself I use these items in my own Printwork. I’m Catherine an Artist based in Liverpool UK. I also teach in person workshops all year round across the UK showing different lino print techniques. I put together this kit along with my own written step by step instructions (hints and tips!) design templates and a series of video tutorials which range from very basic to more advanced techniques. This kit comes in a sturdy kraft box. Happy to hand write personal gift messages, please send me that text by message. The Inks are UK brand ESSDEE which we measure out from tubes into metal tins with screw lid to prevent drying out. You will have plenty ink to complete 10 card prints or 20 postcard prints and lots more. You also get some handmade natural papers to try out size A5. With 4 pieces of lino included, you can each complete 2 designs in full and even use the reverse to have a practice! Lino cut and print is an arts and crafts activity suitable for a complete beginner to somebody with more creative or practical experience. Kids also find this fun - keep them supervised due to sharp tools. Schools advise age 11 upwards but with parental discretion. A great hobby or afternoon activity for 2 people - you can easily chat while being creative, encourage each other & offer advice! Set aside an hour for cutting and an hour to print you'll get a result! Please check out "More from this Maker" for my full range of kits available to buy.

Clever Hands is a small business & Art Studio based in Liverpool UK run by Artist Catherine Carmyllie. When the pandemic hit, creative classes at the studio had to pause. Catherine began sending out arts materials by post so that her students could continue being creative at home. Since then the business has grown and has 3 learning options: purchase a kit online, visit the studio in person or watch the video tutorials free online, learning at your own pace. Catherine also exhibits & sells her own artwork.
