Introduction to Linocut day course photographs

 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.
