Autumnal Lino Print Workshop
12 September @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm BST£110.00
Join us for a wonderful workshop where you will learn the basics of lino printing with our tutor Kirsty Hall. Lino printing is a very relaxing pass-time, creating print after print with different inks.
A bit more detail
In this workshop we will be exploring an autumnal theme taking inspiration from beautiful, British flora and fauna found in our gardens hedgerows and woodlands at this time of year. You will develop a design taking inspiration from Toolerstone’s stunning gardens, leaves, seed heads and plant forms and you can include an animal character if you wish. There will also be a range of example prints on hand to inspire your own ideas. In the afternoon you will print your design in a range of autumnal colours to create atmospheric, seasonal prints.
