Linocut Workshop in Wells Somerset

I’m running a multicolour linocut print workshop, on Saturday 13th May 2017, at the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen’s gallery in Wells. This is a follow on from the Linocut for Beginners workshop that I run. The focus is on learning more advanced registration techniques and processes for making multi-colour prints with accurate registration at home, without the need for a press. It will not focus on mark making or cutting. The aim is for each participant to cut two blocks and use these to make a two colour print. The technique used will allow you to make prints with more than two colours, as many as you want.

All tools and equipment required are provided for use on the day and you will be able create your own unique 2 colour print. There is a maximum of 4 participants to ensure individual attention.

The workshop will start promptly at 10am and finish around 4pm. The cost is £55.00 and can be booked via the Guild gallery in Wells.:-
23a Broad Street, Wells BA5 2DJ (behind Pickwick’s Cafe)

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.
