Linocut printing - botanical and Natural forms in full colour with Laura Sowerby

X

Description

Join me to take a deep dive into linocut print making on this day workshop. You will create your own unique linocut print in full colour with this beautiful, accessible medium. You will have the opportunity to learn every step of the process as I share with you what I know, as well as the chance to take inspiration and encouragement from your fellow participants within a small friendly group. I have taught printmaking to beginners for 8 years and have noticed that everybody ( without exception !) leaves not only with several beautiful prints but also with a great sense of achievement and a big boost, if any were needed, to their confidence. It could be the start of your own love affair with linocut printmaking. The VENUE - tranquility and a piece of cake We will spend the day printmaking in the beautiful surroundings of Brathay near Ambleside. There is a river a short stroll away and the calm and peace of woodland all around. There will be a delicious home-made lunch and refreshments provided throughout the day, including home-made soup, bread, and puddings as well as afternoon tea and plenty of cake to keep us energised - all loving prepared by me.

REVIEWS … ‘What an enjoyable day. It was lovely to see everyone go through the process and have very different results- each wonderful in their own way.’ Joanne Andrews ‘If you get a chance to do Laura’s course then go for it . I learned such a lot and was pleasantly surprised with my little nasturtium print. As a total beginner I now feel ready to go it alone. Harriet Bell
