Event description
Learn how to create beautiful and unique nature-inspired Christmas card designs using a linocut technique.

About this event

This workshop will focus on relief printing using a linocut technique. The subject matter will emphasise the natural world and the significance this has for the health of our immediate and world-wide living environment. Each participant will be able to produce at least one Christmas card design. This course will be suitable for participants who have little or no experience of print making.

The workshop will take place in the beautiful landscape of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site and the Trust’s community room which is located in a fully accessible award winning eco-build, set within the woodlands of Sunniside Old Deer Park in Coalbrookdale.

Refreshments will be provided. Please bring along a packed lunch.

Workshop tutor

Rod began print making seven years ago following his retirement from a career in education. He is largely self-taught but has been fortunate to get a lot of advice and help from other local artists. His subjects reflect his interests in wildlife, local history and our industrial heritage.

He exhibits his work at Jan Park’s studio / gallery at Jackfield, Six Seasons gallery in Church Stretton, and other occasional venues. Rod is chair of the Secret Severn Arts group which have established a yearly “art trail” which has become a significant annual event in Ironbridge Gorge.

Severn Gorge Countryside Trust

This workshop is being hosted by the Severn Gorge Countryside Trust, a local charity.

The Trust’s aim is to promote, protect and conserve the living landscape of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, which has a diverse range of habitats, including wildflower meadows, woodlands and heathlands. But that’s not all! We maintain over 20 kilometres of footpaths, conserve and protect 60 historic structures, run exciting Outdoor Learning and Volunteering Programmes to encourage local people and visitors to engage with the natural environment in a variety of ways.

All proceeds from this workshop will support the work of the Severn Gorge Countryside Trust.

Our Outdoor Learning Programme 2022/2023

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges we face and collectively we need to do everything we can to address it. That’s why the Trust has declared a ‘Climate Emergency’ and our ambition is to be carbon neutral by 2030.

We are looking at all areas of our work to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible. Including our Outdoor Learning Programme.

The programme this year has a sustainable and environmentally conscious approach. Creative workshops will use natural, biodegradable or recycled materials where possible. Informative talks will provide opportunities for people to learn how the Trust manages its land and is restoring vital habitats to lock up carbon and improve biodiversity. Our walks will aim to inspire people of all ages to connect with and enjoy nature, benefitting their health and wellbeing.
