All levels are welcome at this fun, easy to learn, creative workshop..

In this workshop, you will produce a design and transfer it to lino. You will learn how to carve into the lino then use hand printing methods to print your own design. You will print directly onto blank cards and tags, or onto art paper and then mount, to produce your own, original designs. You can experiment by adding coloured paper and hand colouring.

You will leave with 10 cards with envelopes and 10 gift tags printed with your own design and a lino plate that you can continue printing with at home. During the workshop we will discuss lino printing tips and all the equipment and materials needed to start printing at home.

Included in the workshop….
All printing materials and equipment
Tea/coffee on arrival
Brian's fabulous festive lunch

Please bring with you...
An apron (we will be using water-based inks)
Any photos, images, sketches you may want as inspiration (I will have ideas for you as well so don’t worry if you don’t have anything particular in mind).
A selection of interesting papers to print onto if you wish (text, sheet music etc)
Your enthusiasm!
