Introduction to Linocut Workshop 11th August 2018 Wells, Somerset

I’ll be running a one day “Introduction to Linocut” workshop at the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen gallery, in Wells, on Saturday 11th August 2018 from 10am to 4pm.

It is the only workshop I will run this year and will be limited to a maximum of five participants.  As a beginner’s workshop the focus is on helping you to get started and giving you enough information and experience to carry on with linocut after the event. I’ll be showing you a method you can use at home, without the need for a press or too much expensive equipment.

The workshop will include demonstrations followed by practical hands-on experience and experimentation with tools and techniques to create your own unique linocut print. Mark-making is incredibly important in linocut, so there will be time to learn on a practice piece before moving onto working on your design. The tools are sharp, so I will teach you about safety too.

I always like it when people bring their own ideas/subjects to the workshop. It is amazing how diverse people’s interests are and it always makes for some lively conversations during the day.

If you have any questions about the workshop then please send a message via my contact form or ask for more details at the Guild shop in Wells.

Booking is through the Guild (Telephone 01749 671112). It is £55 per person.

The next workshop after this one will be in Spring 2019 and will run over a number of weeks. More information on this later.

Two workshops

By popular demand I’ll be running two more workshops at the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen’s Gallery in Wells, Somerset.

On Saturday 1st of April it will be a beginners workshop, for people who want to try out a new craft. This is a chance to learn the basics of linocut, mark-making, transferring designs, inking and printing.

Then, on Saturday 13th May I’ll run a Multicolour Linocut workshop as a follow-on to the introductory workshops.

This second one will be an opportunity to learn how to make multiple-block prints with as many colours as you like. On the day I’m determined that we’ll manage two colours. The focus is not on mark-making, but on registration and the different techniques you can use to create multiple colour prints with perfect registration.
