About the Course

A visit to the Birmingham City Art Gallery in the winter of 2018, started me thinking about developing a lino cutting and printing workshop inspired by the fine collection of Arts and Crafts ceramics we saw; the colours, patterns and designs of the William de Morgan tiles were particularly impressive and hugely inspirational.

Join me at The Slipper Studio and create your own lino cuts Inspired by Tiles. With a huge range of imagery to choose from, it might make decision making tricky; will it be ornate insects, a mythical beast, a floral image or a wild animal that inspires you?

Lino cutting and printing is a very enjoyable process that can be explored at our kitchen tables and requires the minimum of specialist equipment. If you are looking to learn a new creative skill, but need a process that can be “picked up and put down” and fitted around a busy life, this may well be the technique you have been looking for.

We will cover developing ideas into designs, safe cutting techniques, alongside hand printing and printing using a press. Single colour prints can also be developed by printing onto coloured backgrounds and exploring collage techniques

This one day workshop will introduce you to one colour lino cutting and printing and is the perfect introduction to this addictive print process. There will be a particular focus on how you may continue developing your skills in your own home. However, if you have previous experience of lino cutting, but would benefit from a few prompts and reminders, it’s likely that you would be able to progress quicker and develop a two colour lino print

Liz will host this workshop at her home studio on the edge of the Peak District. The venue is beautifully presented with handcrafted workbenches and a wood burner, with views into the village.
