Details

We are delighted that Janet has agreed to travel from her Northumberland home & print studio to take her wonderful Lino cut courses at Greystoke. Her style, love of garden, flora and landscape fit perfectly; and hopefully we’ll be holding at least one of her courses in the garden! Please bring an apron and wear non precious clothes - printing is messy and the ink stains. There will be a materials charge of between £7 and £10 payable directly to the tutor on the day depending on the amount of work produced. During the class Janet will teach students the importance of design suitable for linocut, how to create and cut using the different tools provided, learn about various inks, using rollers and blending colours. Students will be creating a multi layer print using several colours if required. They will be printing by hand, without the need for a press. The size of each linocut will be approx. A5 size. We are hoping to add a second date in October 2017 - sign up for alerts on our ’keep in touch’ button on our website.
