Lino Print Workshop
23 January 2024 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm GMT£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. In this workshop you will create a design of your choosing. It could be a wild hare, a fox, country scene, pattern or abstract landscape– the choice is yours!
A bit more detail
In the morning session you will learn how to develop a design inspired by nature, woodland creatures or the great British countryside. You will be shown how to balance your design to create a strong composition and then how to carve your lino using specialist tools. In the second part of your day with us you will learn how to skilfully ink and print your blocks by hand and will experiment with colour. You will leave with a range of prints and hopefully a love of lino printing to inspire you in the future!
