My name is Alexandra Buckle. I have been a full time professional printmaker and artist since 2012, I live in Bicester, Oxfordshire, where I have set up my own home printmaking studio.
I'm inspired by countryside walks and excited by light, shadow and colour. I enjoy capturing my favourite scenery as hand printed reduction linocuts. This relief printing technique involves cutting and printing several layers of colour from the same block of lino in order to build up an image.
I teach private lino printing classes and workshops at my home studio in Bicester and group workshops at Claydon Gallery in Buckinghamshire. I can tailor my workshops to artists or printmakers wishing to improve their skills, or to complete beginners.
I am a founder member of the Buckinghamshire Craft Guild based in Stoke Mandeville.

The workshops are a great intro into reduction lino printing for beginners and a chance for improvers to brush up their your skills. We will create a small run of multi-coloured prints. Six spaces are available on each date the cost is £80. Please see Lino Printing Classes for more information.
