Event description

Description

In these Workshops artist Jane Smith will share her Linocut knowledge with you.

Following the success of Jane’s recent Linocut Workshops, she will be holding some more in January and February 2017 and possibly on the third Sunday of every following month.

Linocut Workshops Sun 21 Jan, Sun 18 February 2018

Jane will give a basic outline of how a linocut print is made including cutting the block, rolling the ink, inking the block, taking impressions and making a limited or unlimited edition series or simple one-offs. There will be chance to cut and print images with various types of lino, and Jane has some pre-cut blocks for those who don’t fancy the cutting tools! Participants will make some simple single-colour images, and, time permitting, do two colour ones. Lino, cutting tools, rollers, inks, a burnishing tool, teaspoons (for pressing) and paper will be supplied, although if anyone has tools at home they are welcome to bring them.

She'll bring some of her own work to demonstrate the various effects that can be created with Lino. There will be no need for a press and it is surprising how much can be achieved with a humble teaspoon. (All Jane's prints have been taken with a burnishing tool and a teaspoon at her studio desk) It is also possible to use various types of paper, not just specialist printmaking paper.
Everyone will be welcome to take their work away, of course.

About Jane Smith

Jane Smith is a freelance artist and illustrator based in Dalston, which she loves, and draws inspiration from her surroundings. Jane’s art reflects the changes to Hackney from a “crack alley” to a playground for the wealthy and we feel that her art reflects the old and the new; house prices skyrocketing, Ridley Road Market having become a hipster hotbed of coffee shops and galleries among the fruit and veg that the locals know and love.

Her work spans many disciplines including sketchbook drawings and reportage, hand drawn digitally manipuated building images, map illustrations and printmaking (mainly linocut and wood engraving). As well as working for a number of high-end clients, with names on her list such as Facebook, Habitat, Ted Baker, The Guardian, Time Out, The Museum of London, the NHS and The BBC, it’s no surprise that her work is constantly in demand from organisations, companies and the public alike.
