Printing in Lino Cut ' Botanical and Natural Forms' with Laura Sowerby.

Laura's evocative designs on cushions, lampshades and giftware have recently been widely featured in Country Living, Gardens Illustrated and several Interior design magazine. ‘Discovering that I am a direct descendant of James Sowerby, famous 18th-century botanical illustrator is a delight.’ she smiles.

We are delighted that Laura has agreed to take a ‘Botanical and Natural forms’ Lino Cut workshop here in Greystoke. Students are encouraged to bring any inspiration they can, be it fresh/ pressed leaves or flowers, prints, pictures and any other references that may inspire you. Laura too will bring plenty of material ideas.

Over the day you will learn how to plan your original design, the principles of lino cut and master various cutting techniques with the goal of producing your own multi-coloured linocut print by the end of the day. (up to A4 in size) All abilities are welcome. The print blocks you create can be taken home and used to print onto fabrics and soft furnishings such as cushion covers etc.
