Friday 28th October 2022 - 9.30am-12.30pm
Join me for this introduction to Lino Printing at Butler's Cafe at Kirkstall Forge in Leeds! This event is especially for families and will be aimed at parents and children both making a series of linoprints to take away with them (ie parents will get to make their own prints too!). Children must be over the age of 8 and each child must be accompanied by an adult! Up to 2 adults can attend with each child.
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! Children may need a little help from the adults with the spoon and press as you have to press pretty hard!
You'll be able to make a series of up to 10 A5 prints, or a set of up to 10 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 paper design and 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 and the safety of your child when using the sharp implements. If you are interested in seeing these tools in advance to assess how sharp they are please see here.
