Repeat Pattern Lino Printmaking with a twist of Gelliprint  with Emma Taylor

* THIS EVENT HAS NOW FINISHED *

Saturday 10th September 2022 | 10:00am - 2:00pm

Repeat Pattern Lino Printmaking with a twist of Gelliprint  with Emma Taylor

We will be looking at the art of repeat pattern and how to plan lino motifs which can be printed into extensive sheets.

This workshop is aimed at anyone who would like to explore lino printing techniques for the first time or extend previous knowledge into varied colour. We will be using the gardens as inspiration looking at the beautiful flowers and foliage to design simple motifs. These designs will then be hand carved into soft cut lino that carves much more easily than old fashioned lino and gives wonderfully clean prints. We will print a small edition onto varied papers and backgrounds. Printing onto fabric gives a fantastic starting point for extending into stitch too.

I will also be bringing gelli plates which can be used to create textured one off backgrounds. Printing your lino designs on top of these vibrant prints will give life and individuality to your work. This is such a great technique of adding a splash of colour and texture to traditional  lino printmaking processes.

 

All the skills that learn at this four hour workshop can be transferred straight home to your kitchen table!

Costs: £60 with all materials and garden entry.

All materials will be included in the price.

      Wonderful garden well worth a visit. Great variety of plants showing so many ways of portraying a garden layout. Must comment on the great tea and cakes selection, our dog loved the doggy ice cream!

      Beautifully planted area, in which you are encouraged to walk along paths between the plants so can be completely surrounded by foliage - a lovely effect.
