Description

Workshop Details

Join designer and printmaker Kirstie Williams on this one day Christmas workshop in linocut printmaking. Learn how to print festive cards to give to someone special at the most wonderful time of the year!

Linocut is a relief printing technique where areas of a piece of lino are cut away and the remaining surface of the lino is inked up and printed from. On this workshop you will explore the linocut process, learn to use the cutting tools and small nipping press, and experiment with using oil based inks to create your own edition of greeting cards or fine art prints to take home.

The workshop is suitable for complete beginners as linocut is a simple way to introduce you to printmaking. Those with previous experience can also attend and can use the workshop as a way to further their artistic practice and gain tutor advice and guidance.
All materials and equipment will be provided. This will include 2 pieces of A6 size lino, pencils, cutting tools, cutting mats, a range of oil based ink colours, a small nipping press and a range of papers/card.

It will help to bring along some imagery to use as inspiration, this could be a book, image, drawing, printout, photograph etc.

It doesn't have to be Christmas themed, you can make any kind of print you like!
