A one day workshop where you will have the opportunity to make a group of prints using dry point methods and the etching press.

During this one day workshop you will learn how to design, cut and print your Lino block. There will also be an opportunity to discover how versatile this process can be as you will explore ways to produce multiple colour prints in the afternoon.

Thank you so much for a lovely day on Saturday. It was great fun learning a new technique and meeting other people in the very friendly and relaxed atmosphere of the studio. I came away full of ideas and am looking forward to the Lino printing and etching workshops.  J Povey 6.10. 14

Thanks for the notes.  I really enjoyed Saturday too, it was fascinating exploring the two different collagraph techniques and lovely to work with such a nice group of people and with such a supportive tutor!  A. Butler 10. 10. 14

I have thoroughly enjoyed both my workshops so far and I am looking forward to the Lino Print & Dry Point Etching. It is great to learn new techniques and very exciting to see the results after turning the big wheel on the press. Good value especially if you book all four workshops.    Valerie 09/10/14
