The workshop is run by Elaine Kelly, BA Fine Art, Dip Ceramics. Experienced teacher, Helen has been working with lino for about 7 years but also dry point etching and collographs. She has exhibited in galleries across Hertfordshire and London. She takes inspiration from artist Mark Hearld and from the flora and fauna of the British countryside. In her work, Helen is interested in creating an atmosphere from either colour or form or the dramatic juxtaposition of black and white.
In this 3 hours workshop you will be making card size artworks using the art of linocut. Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum is used for a relief surface. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller, and then impressed onto paper or fabric. You will start by developing quick sketches which will be then transferred into lino cuts starting with fine cutting techniques and exploring line, tone and texture. You will be making cards inspired by nature and the spring season in particular.
No previous experience needed. Suitable for all ability.
