This printmaking kit is my mid range CLASSIC option, suitable for a complete beginner or somebody who tried this relaxing arts activity in the past and wants to revisit!
As an Artist myself I use these items in my own Printwork – I’m Catherine an Artist based in Liverpool UK where I also teach in person workshops. I put together this kit along with written step by step instructions, design templates and a series of video tutorials which range from very basic to more advanced techniques. I offer a wide range of printing kits to suit every budget. No matter which kit you choose, each gives you a good starting point from which you can decide if you enjoy it! Hopefully you will fall in love - its so easy to get great results! Warning - its addictive!! You will get mindfully lost in the cutting process and then feel uplifted when you come to working with the sumptuous printing inks. Set aside an hour to cut the lino & another hour for printing, enough time to complete a small print project.
All my kits are put together by myself & 2 local artist friends. Together in my art studio, we unpack deliveries, check everything is clean & working, carefully wrap & package - stamping by hand as we go. I am keen to keep a 'handmade' feel to my kits, the same as with my artwork & workshops.
The great thing about lino printing is that you can learn at your own pace - make it as easy or difficult as you like. Such a beautiful process made popular by Matisse & Picasso due to its simplicity. Please visit my video channel to meet me in person & check out the free tutorial videos.
Inks are water based so please feel free to thrown them all over yourself (also easy clean up...)
I carefully measure out from larger tubs into smaller tins, wipe the rims before replacing lid, store upright. Stir well before using.
1) inking tray (plastic A4 size approx)
2) roller (brayer) 6cm rubber specifically for lino print & can use with other crafts

Beautiful packaging received promptly.
Excellent, clear instructions
Will highly recommend
So enjoying using the really comprehensive kit
Superb kit for two. Really nice set of tools, limo, paper, cards and ink. Some clear instructions are included and along with the videos are really informative.
I was delighted with this lino kit and I ordered extra colours too. Catherine responded straight away to my order request and it was quickly despatched and beautifuly packaged.
If times change I would happily stay in Liverpool (I live in Surrey) a few days to attend one of her face to face sessions.
Catherine is an excellent person to interact with !! ****************
This kit is just what I wanted. The materials and tools are of good quality and the instructions are easy to understand and follow. The clear explanations and guidelines and tips make for a positive and encouraging result to make you want to do more. Additionally, the set came beautifully wrapped and without 'over the top packaging' which is very important to me. I would recommend this product and in one word it is 'excellent'! Thank you
Loved the packaging . Saw the YouTube tutorials and I am very pleased with all the materials sent by Catherine.
Even tried on a Lino sheet and I think I’m getting addicted to it. Just stripping off each layer of the Lino sheet has been so therapeutic for me ... love love it .
Thank you Catherine
I can't quite go to excellent as I have not used the kit yet, but..... It arrived beautifully packaged and with everything included.
I am looking forward to using it on the next rainy day and as I want to use my own design - when I have decided which it will be.
I love this kit, its something to keep my husband and I entertained through lockdown and we're very much looking forward to trying it.
The seller was super helpful and it arrived quickly. She also put in a bit extra for us as we are doing it as a pair which was unexpected but very gratefully received.
Would 100% use this seller again for any other kits that take our fancy.
