About this event

Please note: This workshop is not for complete beginners but you don't have to be an expert either!

If you'd like to learn how to make linocut prints then we'd love to have you along sometime, you can book onto one of iPrintedThat's online beginner's classes here www.iprintedthat.com/workshop-calendar

Back to the workshop...William Morris is well known for the patterns that adorn walls and windows of homes around the world. Shunning the Victorian era's focus on industrialisation he opted to take inspiration from the English countryside and champion the hand crafted.

It's been said that he insisted on establishing a 'from scratch' understanding of process and in this workshop you'll experience the compelling nature of start-to-finish pattern design and printmaking with Rachel Moore from iPrintedThat.

Using your lino and tools you’ll work through a series of exercises experimenting with shape, line and repeat. Your prints will be inspired from Morris' designs during his time at The Red House and beyond.

For the workshop you will need:

  • Your lino kit including cutting tools and baren
  • Tracing paper or greaseproof paper
  • Pencil
  • Lino tile 10cm x 15cm (I know that sounds small but don't worry we're going to get lots of prints from it!)
  • Block ink in your choice of colour(s)
  • Paper to print onto - preferably A1 / A2 or plain lining wallpaper

The workshop is delivered over Zoom. Please make sure that you have Zoom downloaded on your laptop / PC / tablet / phone prior to booking.
