Join me for this introduction to Lino Printing at The Den in Headingley. I am really excited about launching this new style of workshop, where you can drop your little ones in the crèche in the room next door with trained early years professionals, whilst finding creative time for you! There is an option to buy a ticket with, and without the crèche, as everyone is welcome at this workshop and you don't have to bring a child with you!

 

The crèche is available for children from 3 months to 8 years. The crèche is available at a reduced rate of £10 for 2 hours per child. If you would like to bring more than 2 children with you to use the crèche please get in touch.

 

The Den is a lovely space in the heart of Headingley which offers a dedicated crèche and plenty of baby and parent classes! They've got a gorgeous adults' room too where the lino print workshop will take place! 

 

In this beginners' intro to linoprint workshop, you will learn about how to transfer your design onto a block, how to cut your design into the lino and how to print your design using ink. We'll be using wooden spoons to transfer your design onto paper, so you can learn to do it at home, and you'll get chance to use a printing press too!

 

You'll be able to make a series of up to 8 A5 prints, or a set of up to 8 cards to take away with you. Don't worry if you're not a confident drawer, I will show you how to make abstract designs or trace from an existing design. This workshop is the perfect opportunity to take some time out, get creative and have some fun.

 

All materials for use at the workshop are included in the price as well as tea/coffee/squash! I recommend you bring some ideas with you for your design so you can get started straight away! Stuck for ideas? Get in touch and I can send you some inspiration through of some lino printmakers I love!

 

Please note that we'll be using sharp (ish) tools to cut out the lino design nd I will be providing a health and safety briefing to show everyone how to cut safely. In purchasing the ticket to this workshop you accept full responsibility for your own safety when using the sharp implements.

 

No prior experience neccessary! If you need to cancel your spots at the class:

If you cancel 14 days or more before I will provide a full refund

If you cancel 7-14 days before I will issue a 50% refund

If you cancel 7 days or less before I won't be able to offer a refund as it'll be tricky to find someone to fill your spot!
