High quality lino printing without a press.
Taking inspiration from the flora and fauna designs of William Morris and William de Morgan, you will learn to design and print your own repeating image. The design will be cut and printed from two separate lino blocks. Due to this method being multi-block as opposed to a reduction printmaking method, you will be able to continue printing at home on either paper or fabric using the same blocks. Throughout the lino printing workshop there will be step-by-step demonstrations on colour lino design, cutting and printing techniques. The course will enable you to produce high-quality lino prints at home without the need for a traditional printing press and with a minimum amount of space and outlay. You will also learn how to add gold, silver or copper leaf to your design, should you wish to add a touch of shimmer. Materials and suppliers will be discussed, and you will be given an illustrated booklet on the topics covered.
Happy childhood memories of teaching other children in my parents’ garden shed led me to undertake a PGCE in Post Compulsory Education at Greenwich University. I taught fine art for 7 years at Epsom College and 10 years at Bryanston School. In 2018 I left my full-time teaching post to immerse myself in my creative work and to deliver art workshops.
Art has always been a central part of my life; I studied BA Hons Fine art at Cardiff Met. and then went on to help restore some iconic buildings as an architectural conservator. Alongside my teaching posts, I undertook a Postgraduate Certificate in Fine Art Printmaking at Wimbeldon School of Art and more recently an MA in Fine Art at Arts University Bournemouth.
Large-scale paper sculpture has featured highly in my recent work. I am an elected member of the Royal Society of Sculptors and I exhibit regularly.
