About the Course

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 image ready to be transferred onto lino, then you will cut your lino design. You will 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 back of the car would work.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

My friend and I had an amazing day on Judith's Introduction to Linocut Printing course as a birthday present to each other. We were welcomed into Judith's beautiful home and given tea, biscuits, cake and careful instruction on how to bring our ideas to life. Judith has loads of equipment and reference books and a wonderful, light space to work in. Most of all she's a kind and patient teacher and shared her time among the group well. The point at which you lift the paper to reveal your first print is like magic - we were all super pleased with our work. It was easy to book and the instructions for joining the course were clear. Judith even advised us on good places to walk and eat in Ely to complete our exciting day!! I travelled from Kent to join the course and would happily do so again.

We had a wonderful day with Judith. From the really warm welcome and beautiful space to the patient instruction and encouragement. The atmosphere was really relaxed and enabling, and the biscuits plentiful. I was amazed at what I was able to achieve in a day and was very inspired by the work of all my fellow course attendees too. No hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending Judith's courses: such soul food!

Response from print paper stitch experiences:

Thanks Nell - it was a pleasure to work with you and help you create your beautiful prints!

I had a great day with Judith. I learnt a lot in a comfortable and well equipped environment and was amazed at how much work I produced. Judith's teaching is paced and structured very well with easy to follow instructions and explanations. Highly recommended.

My daughter (aged 13) and I had an inspiring day with Judith. She shared her knowledge and experience with us and supported us throughout the printing process. There was plentiful supply of tea, cookies and delicious flapjack too! We have continued to create our own pieces at home - thank you, Judith. I would highly recommend this course.

My sister, Mum and myself took this course a few weeks ago. We were all beginners and we we absolutely loved the course. From the moment we arrived we felt at home, with the added bonus of lots of coffee and cake!

Judith put us at ease straight away and we were down to business in no time. We all managed to create some great lino prints with the help of Judith, and the relaxed atmosphere made it such an enjoyable day.

We would all highly recommend.

This was my first attempt at Lino Printing and I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Judith was a great teacher, providing support, instruction and a lot of inspiration for future projects. I was really happy with what I managed to produce during the session and went home confident to do more at home.
