Lino Printing on Fabric - Oxford Linocut Workshops

X

About the Course

Join Claire in her countryside studio where you will learn how to design and carve your own lino printing blocks.

The workshop begins with an introduction to linocut, everyone is taught how to use the carving tools and the basic cutting techniques. An initial practice block is made which allows students to experiment with mark making. Students are often surprised at how quickly their skills develop.

Everyone will be guided through the process of designing repeating patterns and you will be shown how to ink your lino block and how to print onto fabric.
You may wish to bring some of your own images to work from, however there will be plenty of inspiration at hand to help you plan your design.

Your printed fabric panels could be made into cushion covers, sewn into bags, used for upholstery etc.

By the end of the workshop you will have gained confidence as a printmaker and you will have all the skills needed to continue printmaking at home. You will also be given a printmaking guide booklet to remind you of all the techniques.

The workshop is hands-on, creative and very informative. Everything is explained clearly with demonstrations, lots of support and advice is given throughout and there will be plenty of individual tuition time.

Claire is a friendly and encouraging teacher, she has exhibited with the Society of Wood Engravers, at The Mall Galleries in London, as well as regularly taking part in Oxfordshire Art Weeks.

Suitable for beginners and those with some experience - ​ Over 16s.

I had so much fun on this course! Claire has an infectious enthusiasm for lino and wood cutting, and was an excellent teacher. All equipment is provided and you dont need any prior experience. Claire's studio is lovely, and her pieces are really inspiring. There is enough time on the course to learn the basics, make several lino cuts and produce a printed fabric to take home. I was really pleased with what we were able to produce.

A really well planned workshop on fabric printing. All tools and fabric was provided, along with a leaflet to take home as a reminder. I learned a lot and feel ready to try the techniques at home to create my own fabric for soft furnishing in future. Claire was calm and reassuring and created a relaxed creative space. Such an enjoyable day.

Claire is a dedicated and inspiring teacher; her course is thorough, fun and flexible. She carefully took us through all the processes and techniques and embraced each of our ideas. Everyone was excited by the printing and fabric created. It was a wonderful day in a delightful workshop with a great teacher.
We all want to do more printing!
Thank you, Claire
