An introduction to high quality lino printing without a press.
Throughout the three-day reduction lino printing workshop there will be step-by-step demonstrations of colour lino design, cutting and printing techniques. You will be given an illustrated booklet on the areas covered, so you will feel confident to continue printing at home if you wish; high quality lino prints can be easily produced at home without a need for a traditional printing press and with a minimum amount of space and outlay. Professional materials and less expensive alternatives will be discussed as well as papers and suppliers. You will also learn how to add imitation gold, silver or copper metal leaf to your lino prints, should you wish to add a touch of shimmer. Examples of inspiring artist prints will be shown so you can see the diverse range of possibitliies which can be achieved from lino printing such as cards, fabric printing, framed prints and wallpaper design. The aim is for you to take home a series of coloured prints on paper of which you can be extremely proud.
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.
