Lino Printing for Christmas
Saturday 12th November 10am-3pm £50
Using this traditional technique you will be able to create personalised printed greetings cards and gift tags to your own design. Begin by carving your designs using lino tools before inking up your plate with a brayer, moving on to transfer your inked image onto paper using our much loved sturdy little printing press , alternatively you may wish to experiment with using a baren. All materials will be provided, however if you have any seasonal images which you have found (such as in books or magazines) or created (such as drawings or photographs) which appeal to you this will be helpful in beginning to visualise your print designs.
Tea, coffee and cake are provided as part of your workshop fee.
