Description:

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 – 8 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.

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

Please bring a packed lunch
If you have a particular theme or image you would like to work from please bring it along – your own drawings, photographs or magazine cuttings are all good source materials – but don’t worry if you haven’t – that can all be provided.
Please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting messy and/or an apron

What we will provide:
The workshop will take place in a converted coach house set in a beautiful garden. There will be the opportunity to work outside if weather permits or inside a light filled open space.
All materials and equipment will be provided.
There will be coffee/tea and cookies available in the morning, and afternoon tea and cake. Please let us know of any special dietary requirements.

We look forward to welcoming you,
Judith


Want to review this course?

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!
