Lino Printing Christmas
15 November @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm GMT£95.00
Join us for a wonderfully festive workshop where you will learn the basics of lino printing with our tutor Kirsty Hall.
A bit more detail
Lino printing is a very relaxing pass-time, creating print after print with different inks. You will learn how to create your own lino block designs and use coloured inks to create 12 Christmas cards as well as gift tags and place setting cards. This lovely process is fun to work with and you can experiment with colour and composition.
