Linocut Printing Workshops - March 2020

Updated: Mar 17, 2020

This month I've taught 4 introduction to linocut workshop in my York studio.

Monday 16 March 2020

My 3rd day of teaching linocut workshops this weekend. My cheeks hurt from smiling. Such an enthusiastic group and supportive and encouraging of each other. Sean created a design of Castle Hill in Huddersfield and his mum a traditional Galway hooker fishing boat. Sarah created an embellished letter A and her mum a heron. It was a very welcome escape from the world's surreal events.

What did you enjoy the most about the day?

“I enjoyed your conscious effort to ensure everybody was happy with what they wren creating. I noticed that you never actually did the work for anyone, which allowed freedom of expression and trust in what we where doing.”
Nice small group. A very clear intro and demonstration. Lovely atmosphere and workspace.”
“All of it! It was great to start small and try different techniques and then move onto our own piece. Lovely small group.”
“Loved every minute of it, you are welcoming and friendly and teaching skills are amazing. Didn’t think when I walked in that I would walk out with a print that actually resembled something!”

This is my follow on linocut workshop. Using the ‘jigsaw’ technique to create multi coloured linocut prints.

Nicola and Hannah are friends that have bought the intro & this workshops for each other’s birthdays. Penny and Sarah have come up to York again for a long weekend together.

Fabulous results.

What did you enjoy the most about the day?

“It was all wonderful, thank you. Thanks for boosting my confidence when I felt a bit overwhelmed.”
“Developing my initial idea into a design with your help and guidance. Thank you so much. “
