Christmas Lino Printing
This is a fun activity and an opportunity to produce your own art and also create something special for friends and family at Christmas.
In this workshop you will carve a festive lino stamp and have the opportunity to block print cards, tags and gift bags. You will then take your personal unique block home for more printing.
You will use simple techniques that can be replicated at home with the use of a printing press.
During your workshop you will learn how to;
- Draw and cut on lino
- Use different tools to create texture
- Ink up and print by hand
- Print onto tags, card blanks and gift bags
You do not have to be good at drawing to enjoy this workshop and you will get to take home a unique handmade piece of work together with your lino which you can continue to use at home.
You may wish to give some thought on a possible design prior to the workshop. Reference material will be available but you are free to bring with you an A6 sized drawing, photo or other image to work with.
All materials are included. It is possible to purchase a starter kit at the end of the workshop.
The workshop is open to those aged over 10 years when accompanied by a full paying adult.
This workshop is run by local artist Sue Collins.
