Chine collé lino printed Christmas card workshop
Chine collé is a fun lino printing technique, where we combine collage with lino printing. This workshop is suitable for beginners, as full instruction on lino carving and printing will be given. This is the opportunity to learn a traditional art form, which is wonderfully relaxing. The skills learned on the workshop can used to make all kinds of lino printed artwork, from printed greetings cards to landscapes, etc. I'll take you through traditional lino printing, as well as the fun addition of collage to our lino prints, in order to make your unique Christmas cards. You'll go home with a set of around a dozen Christmas cards ready to go in the post. I have three different designs for you to choose from, or you can bring along your own to work on. Festive nibbles will be on hand throughout the session, and we’ll have Christmas music too, to get you in the mood. Please note: my workshop has to be accessed by stairs. There is a maximum number of three people on the workshop, so you will receive plenty of individual attention and tuition.
What's included in the price?
Tools and materials to make a dozen greetings cards per person are included. Hot drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
Easy - Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts
I’m Carrie, and I’m an artist and art and crafts teacher based in Stanley, north east England. I have been teaching art and crafts since the early 2000s and teach a weekly art and craft workshop in the local area for a social prescribing programme. Through personal experience, I know just how engaging with art and crafts can bring about a wonderful sense of wellbeing and relaxation. I absolutely love passing on my knowledge and the benefits of art and craft for wellbeing. I particularly enjoy teaching absolute beginners, so rest assured, whatever your art and craft experience, I will guide you through the process and make it as enjoyable as I can for you! I love to share my knowledge and tips and techniques, so I hope you'll find the classes fun and informative.
