Create your own Christmas cards on our festive themed card printing workshop.

About this event

On this workshop you’ll carve your own lino printing block and learn how to use the inks, tools and equipment to make lino printed cards. Perfect to send your friends and family a unique handmade card this Christmas!

What experience do I need?

This is an introduction to the lino printing technique. The workshop is aimed at complete beginners, no experience is necessary.

What will I make?

You will produce an edition of at least 10-15 hand printed Christmas cards and will take these away along with envelopes. You’ll also be able to take your carved lino piece away with you to continue printing with at home if you wish.

Who is my tutor?

Joanna Wilkinson is a practising printmaker, illustrator and bookbinder. She uses printing, collage, analogue/slow photography and sometimes even old style colouring techniques like felt tips in her work! Joanna has recently completed an MA Creative Practice at Leeds Arts University and is also a Co-operative Member of Leeds Print Workshop. She has been working with us over the last three years as a technician and tutor. She has experience in teaching a wide variety of different groups of people including children and adults.

We will refund you if you cancel no less than 14 days before the start of the first session of the course, after this time no refunds will be issued.

Accessibility

Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible. By their nature, some printmaking processes involve an amount of physical effort. Leeds Print Workshop is based in a basement studio at Patrick Studios, a bespoke venue for artists operated by East Street Arts. It is fully wheelchair accessible, with a lift, larger than standard doors and disabled toilet facilities. We recognise that everybody’s accessibility needs may differ, therefore please email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org to discuss any concerns you may have before booking. There is one dedicated disabled car parking space to the side of the building on Rider Street.

Please note: we regret that, for safety reasons, only those over the age of 16 will be permitted to undertake the course.
