Easy Printmaking- Linocut Workshop at Hitchin Lavender Farm, Hertfordshire
Contact course provider
About the Course
A two and a half hour workshop in a purpose built studio in the picturesque setting of Hitchin Lavender Farm, where I will teach you how to transfer your design onto lino, show you how to cut it, and then use it to print a whole range of cards, tags and paper gift bags.
Come and learn how easy it is to produce some beautiful handmade prints, and enjoy the stunning surroundings. The class is suitable for beginners, or as I can tailor the class according to each students needs and experience is equally suited to improvers and experts.
Workshops run on certain Tuesdays and Fridays throughout April, May, June and July. Simply choose the date which suits you best when placing your order, and I will post you a workshop ticket with details and directions to the farm, located on the edge of Ickleford, near Hitchin, Hertfordshire. This would make a lovely activity for you and a friend or relative. The workshop is also child-friendly. I will happily bring some materials which little ones can make prints with, or they can simply watch and play- just let me know.
Please note tickets are non refundable.

You'll also have a set of tags to print onto, and a set of paper bags. The lino you cut will be yours to take home, and you'll also have a guide to easy linocutting to keep.
You'll receive a complimentary tea or coffee on arrival; the cafe in the main barn on site offers lunch and cakes too, as well as a range of tempting lavender gifts. Included in the workshop cost is a walk around the wonderful lavender fields (cutting lavender is an option which you can pay for on arrival if you wish).
You can conclude your morning with a wander round the beautiful lavender fields.
