As part of our Autumn Art in the Barn Creative Arts Week, how about joining us in our inspirational thatched barn on the edge of the South Downs Way, for a days lino cutting and printing?
The Long Barn is a light and spacious venue which allows you to be socially distanced from other participants with your own work space and equipment.
Lino cutting and printing is a very enjoyable process that can be explored at our kitchen tables and requires the minimum of specialist equipment. Many of us may remember creating our first lino cut during our Art lessons at secondary school. 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.
Working from your chosen images or a range of ideas available on the day, this workshop will introduce you to one colour lino cutting and printing. This is the perfect introduction to this addictive print process, with 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, its likely that you would be able to progress quickly and develop a two colour lino print.
You will cover developing ideas into designs, safe cutting techniques, alongside successful hand printing. Single colour prints can also be developed by printing onto coloured backgrounds and exploring collage techniques.
We will be joined by artist and maker Liz Wellby, who lives and works on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire. With over 25 years experience teaching and tutoring, Liz will guide you through this addictive printing process, enabling you to create a range of outcomes that will be much admired by family and friends.
COVID-19: Depending on government requirements in October, all appropriate social distancing measures will be in place.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
This workshop will run from 10 - 4pm, with places limited to 10, including: tuition, all materials and use of equipment. Drinks and refreshments will be served throughout the day; just bring your lunch.
Please bring along: an apron, A5 drawings/photographs/images that inspire you, an old magazine to transport wet work home.
