Join Claire for an Online Linocut Printmaking workshop. During the workshop, you will be carefully guided through each stage of the linocut process and you will leave with the confidence and skills to continue printmaking at home. We will cover: the various types of lino and how to prepare them, how to use the carving tools with precision, the many different ways of making marks in the lino, how to plan a design, different ways to transfer your design onto the lino, inking, blending colours by creating a gradient roll and how to get the perfect print every time. You will be able to see all these live demonstrations up close and follow along. You will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the session and Claire will help you with any areas you're having trouble with. You will also have the chance to work on your design ideas with Claire you will receive support and guidance as you go. The workshop will take place via Zoom and there will be a maximum of 6 guests to allow for plenty of individual tuition time.

She has exhibited with the Society of Wood Engravers, at The Mall Galleries in London, as well as regularly taking part in Oxfordshire open studios. .
