Inspired by Vanessa Bell’s woodcuts, artist Sara Lee leads a two day course in which you will learn basic cutting and printing techniques. You will begin by making a simple monochrome block, which is the way Bell worked, before introducing a second colour on day two. You will come away having created a set of prints. Suitable for all abilities. All materials are provided.
