 Completed “Introduction to Linocut ” day course.

January 6th 2018

An excelent enjoyable day was had in the studio. Three talented people attended our first introduction to linocut day course and were able to explore their latent handmade printing skills. We saw three very different approaches. New friends were made and new skills learned.

To join us on an upcoming course see available dates.

Printing out Linocut samples

In preparation for our first linocut course we’ve been busy in the studio getting everything ready !

We have made some sample linocut plates each divided into 12 squares as a format to encourage the exploration of mark making in lino. We have prepared a couple of these ourselves and printed them out as examples.

To join us on an upcoming Linocut course see available dates.
