About the Course
In this fun and inspiring workshop you will learn the basic principles of lino cutting and printing to create a set of one and two colour prints on paper. You have the choice of working from your own images (photos and/or drawings) or from some of mine. As the course is run for no more than 2 people at a time, it can be tailored very much to individual needs and requirements.

By the end of the day you will have:

  • Learnt about materials and equipment for linoprinting

  • Studied a range of examples for inspiration and understanding

  • Observed a number of demonstrations for inspiration and understanding

  • Created a set of printed images to take home with you

  • Understood health and safety issues when linoprinting

  • Received a set of technical handouts to support your day’s learning

The workshop is run for groups of 2 people or 1 person, on a day negotiated with me, and is held in my comfortable and cosy garden studio close to Richmond Park and Kingston town centre. The session costs £70 each, or if you want to do the course on your own it will cost £125.

I have 30 years experience teaching art, textiles, printmaking and illustration in further and adult education, in colleges and privately too, so you can be certain of well structured, well pace and inspiring teaching and learning.

Alongside my teaching, I have been a practicing artist and designer for 30 years, exhibiting nationwide and working commercially within the fields of textiles and illustration.

I am doing the best I can with social distancing in my studio offering visors and sanitiser. My studio is in my garden and the loo is in my house – I will supply your own hand towels for the day and simply ask that you are as vigilant as you can be in these strange and somewhat difficult circumstances. I am committed to track and trace and urge participants to be committed to it as well.

What’s included in the price?
Costs include all materials, tea, coffee, soft drinks.
