Create striking original art under the guidance and tuition of artist and printmaker Emily Brooks.

Suitable for both beginners and those with a little experience, this one-day workshop will give you the skills and confidence to continue printmaking at home.

We will provide a relaxed and nurturing atmosphere and you will get the opportunity to work at your own pace. Our tutor will be on hand to guide you along, whatever your level of experience.

In the weeks before the workshop, we’ll be in contact by email with notes on choosing a suitable image to work from. Bringing pre-selected images and ideas will enable us to spend more time printing on the day. And if you are struggling for ideas, we can help with that too – even people who say they cannot draw create beautiful linocut prints.

By the end of the workshop, you’ll have designed, cut and printed your own single-colour artworks to take home, which can be framed or made into cards. 

The course will cover:

  • An introduction to linocut printing (or a refresher if you’ve done it before)
  • Creating and printing a sampler to gain confidence with carving tools and try different mark-making techniques.
  • Developing your final design, with support if needed.
  • Transferring the design onto a lino block and carving.
  • Ink rolling and hand-printing with a selection of colours using water-based printing inks.
  • Advice and tuition will be on-hand at every step.

Emily will also be running workshops on the following dates: 

16th March – Explore Lino Print day workshop

7th September – Lake District Mountain Landscape Lino Print day workshop

24th November – Christmas Lino Stamp half day workshop
