Introduction Linocut Printing Workshops - February 2020

This month I’m teaching 6 linocut workshops in my York print studio. In this blog I’ll share with you my introduction to linocut print workshops.

Saturday 1 February 2020

A few photos from today’s introduction to linocut workshop. Victoria and Isabel were celebrating 20 years of friendship by doing the workshop. They had both done a 2hr workshop together before. Sarah and daughter Rachael were complete beginners. They all packed up the carving and printing very quickly. I love their designs.

What did you enjoy the most about the day?

“Learning the different techniques and being able to experiment with different patterns and designs. Most creative I’ve felt in a while!”
“Everything! Loved the relaxed atmosphere and the way Michelle made the whole process so accessible to even a beginner.”
“The relaxed and encouraging atmosphere.”
“Everything, the teaching was good, easy to understand and sufficient information. It was also a very relaxing environment, made to feel very welcome.”
The best thing of the day? Being told “It’s one of the nicest days I’ve had.” I really enjoyed it too!

Another creative day on my introduction to lino print workshop with Sue, Simon, Sarah and Tim.

What did you enjoy the most about the day?

“Careful explanations and small groups, so plenty of time for individual advice.”
“Experimenting with different designs and techniques. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.“
“Learning the cutting skills and being able to print your design.”
“The finished print.”

Saturday’s creative day with Jules, Marie and Ken. All complete beginners to linocut.

With a bit of extra time at the end they were able to try different colours and carve small designs that could be used for linocut cards.

Thank you to Jules for coming to the rescue with the kettle after mine broke and the honey roasted peanuts!
