Learn the basics of linocut printmaking and come away with gift tags, christmas tree decorations and paper bags printed with your very own pattern design! This is a fun short taster workshop suitable for complete beginners or those with some experience who need a quick refresher in the linocut process. The price includes all materials including quality cards and envelopes to print onto. (Mince pies included!)
If you have a hectic life and have to squeeze your creative time into a tightly-packed schedule, our CREATE! Saturday Sessions are for you! You can have your morning lie-in, learn a new skill and indulge your creativity, and get home in time for tea! All our workshops are suitable for beginners and are taught by expert tutors.
