On Saturday Stephanie, Margaret and Moira joined me for ‘Introduction to linocut printing’ workshop.
Everyone came with inspiration from landscapes and places that they'd been which for me was a complete delight.
Here’s what they said....
What did you enjoy the most about the day?
I enjoyed it all. Most of all I enjoyed the surprise of how the print turned out! It was great to learn how to do this technique in such a friendly and relaxed environment. Brilliant Saturday!
Total package! Excellent instructions, suggestions and help when needed but the freedom to chose you’re own subject matter if you wanted to.
Learning different techniques in a lovely friendly environment. Michelle’s patience!
Stephanie's design is inspired by a photo take at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. Fynbos flowers are in the foreground and Cape Town’s Table Mountain in the background.
Moira's design is inspired by a photo taken at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse in Bristol, Maine. I love the line of lines of the rock formations that lead your eye through the image.
Margaret's design is inspired by a photo taken in Reeth, Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales. The village green and church fill the foreground and the lines of stone walls depicting field boundaries recede into the distance.
Cutting their designs into soft cut lino.
Everyone chose what colour they would like for their prints.
I mixed this vibrant green using two shades of Hawthorns oil based inks. These are the printmaking inks I use for my own prints.
My linocut workshops are all held in my York print studio. I teach in small groups, no more than four people, so that everyone gets lots of one to one tuition.
