Event description

Description

Spend a morning of total creativity in beautiful surroundings overlooking the North Downs. Learn the art of pattern design and explore printmaking techniques to produce your own hand-printed wallpaper

After a warm welcome and introductions, we will begin by exploring repeat patterns and making sketches using the surrounding area as inspiration. You are also welcome to bring ideas with you in the form of photos, magazines, drawings, books, wallpaper, fabric swatches etc. Working with your initial sketches you'll learn practised methods to create a repeat pattern, transfer your design to a lino block, use tools to carve it and then print your wallpaper. You will leave with a sample of wallpaper and your linocut to carry on printing at home.

The workshop promises to be a fully immersive experience using creativity to connect to the area's natural beauty and landscape. I'll teach you the tricks and skills you'll need and give advice on where and what to buy to carry on printing at home.

Note for attendees: No previous printing experience required. Please bring a light lunch, an apron or painting shirt and a sketch book and pencils. All equipment, inks, plain wallpaper, hot drinks and cake are supplied. Tickets are non-refundable.
