About the Course
'Made by Me' Creative Workshop - Lino printing for Christmas cards
Suitable for beginners – as a process Lino printing is lovely it gives very unique marks. The focus is that you have a bit of fun and that you go home with at least 6 good quality cards. You will cut your own design on to a soft cut lino block/plates that are no bigger than 10 x 10cm.
Please bring a drawing or printed simple image to work with, you will be able to work faster if you have decided what design you want to cut and if you have a printed image of it that’s to scale. Please feel free to work on a design that is ‘picture’ in its own right, a repeatable motif or a tile like repeat/boarder design.. Please allow a min 4 hours, Starting at 11.30am.
Any questions, please drop me a wee note.

Finding me…Parking is at the rear through the side entrance off Algermon Street which leads you to the old school playground carpark. From here you can walk through the white café doors in the middle of the car park or make your way through the ‘old playground’ side gate to the right of the building, walking left towards the main front door.
I enjoyed this workshop so much! Maria taught us all the techniques of linocut printing and explained everything clearly and with examples. We all produced and took home samples of our cards. It was a great day and Maria gave us all the individual attention we needed. I now have the linocutting bug and can’t wait to do more!
