About the Course
For absolute beginners, or those who haven't cut any lino for a very long time, this is a perfect way to start.
Using easy to cut lino, you will learn how to design, and cut your own original block, and how to print it on paper, in a single colour. We will look at a variety of techniques from other artists so that you can see a number of ways to make an image.
You will receive guidance and encouragement at every stage of the process and you should end the day with a good knowledge of how to make further linocuts in a single colour.
You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation. When you book a residential package you will get discounted accommodation in our stylish boutique hostel located in the centre of Cirencester in the Cotswolds right next door to New Brewery Arts. Our former 19th Century Cotswold stone brewery barrel store has been beautifully transformed into 21st century accommodation, light and well-appointed with a craftsman’s attention to detail. We offer guest accommodation for up to 43 people over two floors in 14 rooms, with a choice of single, bunk, family and double bedrooms, 12 with en-suite facilities. A ground floor disabled-friendly room is also available. The hostel provides a stylish communal dining and relaxation area, self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities and lockers for your bike. As with all our courses and workshops these are led by experienced tutors and as you will be part of a small group there is plenty of time to focus on you.
