Figure out this skill together!
A linocut & print kit with everything needed for 2 people to do together!
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. (pre Covid...) Trust me……I tried all the rollers, all the inks, all the cutters…..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 with gift wrapped - see photos. Happy to hand write personal gift messages the lucky receiver won't see what the surprise gift is until they unwrap!
The Inks are a UK brand ESSDEE which I measure out from tubes into 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 10 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!

This kit is just what I wanted. The materials and tools are of good quality and the instructions are easy to understand and follow. The clear explanations and guidelines and tips make for a positive and encouraging result to make you want to do more. Additionally, the set came beautifully wrapped and without 'over the top packaging' which is very important to me. I would recommend this product and in one word it is 'excellent'! Thank you
Loved the packaging . Saw the YouTube tutorials and I am very pleased with all the materials sent by Catherine.
Even tried on a Lino sheet and I think I’m getting addicted to it. Just stripping off each layer of the Lino sheet has been so therapeutic for me ... love love it .
Thank you Catherine
I can't quite go to excellent as I have not used the kit yet, but..... It arrived beautifully packaged and with everything included.
I am looking forward to using it on the next rainy day and as I want to use my own design - when I have decided which it will be.
I love this kit, its something to keep my husband and I entertained through lockdown and we're very much looking forward to trying it.
The seller was super helpful and it arrived quickly. She also put in a bit extra for us as we are doing it as a pair which was unexpected but very gratefully received.
Would 100% use this seller again for any other kits that take our fancy.
What a fabulous afternoon spent with Catherine on her lino cut course at Chemist & Co. The venue is great, with loads of space to spread out, and Catherine is a great teacher. She came armed with loads of inspiration for our lino cut cards, and loads of fab colours for the printing. I love my cards and will be sneding them out with pride. Thank you Catherine.
