About the Course

Introduction to Block Lino Printing.

Structure of the workshop days:
The aim is to provide a relaxed, friendly, supportive, experimental and fun experience where you will learn a new (or revive a previous) skill and take home something you feel proud enough to frame!
Group size: 4 – 6 people. You can book as a group or as an individual
The day:
• Start 09.45 for 10.00am start
• 13.00 Lunch (45 minutes)
• 16.00 Finish
We will start by preparing an original image ready to be transferred onto lino, then you will cut your lino design. You will then have an opportunity to prepare and experiment with a range of collaged surfaces and coloured papers to print your lino design onto. We will then spend the afternoon printing. Work may still be ‘tacky’ at going home time so it can either be sent home to you a few days later or you may wish to consider how you could transport it home – spread out in the boot of the car would work.

The Introduction to Lino Printing will cost £60.00 for the day

I had an awesome day with Judith. She helped me decide the design to bring to the course and showed me lots of different ways to use the lino print I made. It was a very friendly and constructive environment to learn in and I will be framing and hanging my prints. I would recommend this course to any one who wants to learn about lino-printing.

Really enjoyed the day with Judith. She was very encouraging and gave us lots of suggestions when making our design and choosing how to print it. Lovely rural venue. Came home with something to frame and put on the wall!
