Lino Printing Classes

 


NEW!! Gift vouchers now available for private lino printing tuition

Are you considering buying lino printing tuition as a gift for someone? I can now offer gift vouchers that can be purchased for lino workshops. There is no need to book a date for the workshop beforehand unless you would like to. 
You can pay for the vouchers using the same methods as below; simply contact me afterwards to let me know that the payment is for a voucher. 
I will then post the vouchers to you first class at no additional cost and you will also receive one of my blank greetings cards that you can write a personal message in. Or if you like I can send the voucher and card straight to the recipient; you may like to give me a personal message to write inside the greetings card. 

Private Lino Printing Day Workshops at my home studio in Bicester

I'm pleased to announce that I can now offer dedicated linocut tuition at my home studio in Bicester. Whether you are completely new to lino printing or want to improve a particular aspect of your work, you'll have my undivided attention! 
My lino workshops can be on a 1-to-1 basis, or 1-to-2 if you would like to come with a friend or relative.
I'll help you plan, execute and complete a print in a day using the ‘reduction’ linocut method. This is a multi-colour relief printing technique which involves cutting and printing a few layers of colour from the same block of lino in order to build up an image.
We will cover how to plan a design and transfer it to the lino; how to cut the lino; how to ink up the lino and how to print it.  Most students manage to print three to four colours. I do have a small relief press and a larger press, but I normally show students how to burnish the prints by hand. This way you can easily replicate the process at home with minimal equipment.
You will also learn how to correctly register your prints so that each layer of colour lies directly on top of the previous layer. 

Standard hours for day bookings are 10am-4pm. I charge £150 for one person for the day or £190 for two people (£95 each). This includes all your materials and as much tea or coffee as you can drink!

Workshops for very large groups

I can't easily fit more than two students at my home studio and eight students together at Claydon Gallery.
If you are a group of more than eight and you are interested in doing a lino printing workshop, please get in touch as I can hire alternative venues, or perhaps you have access to a suitable venue?


Demonstrations

I am happy to do demonstrations for groups and societies, please get in touch if you are interested.
