LINO PRINTING WEEKEND
AT ELM FARM STUDIO, GREAT TEY, ESSEX
Sat & Sun 10th & 11th August 2019
10.00am – 4.00pm
Tutor: Lynne Blackburn
Venue: Elm Farm Studio, Great Tey, Essex
We invite you to join us at our ‘pop up’ event at textile artist Alex Waylett’s Studio, Elm Farm, Great Tey in Essex for a 2 day lino printing course based around the theme of seed heads, wild flowers, leaves and landscape. Lynne will provide lots of printouts and images for inspiration and students are welcome to bring along any images they want to use based on the same theme.
Students will each be provided with 2 lino blocks, at approx 150mm sq. to work on so that over the weekend they will be able to create a 2 colour design. We will use various techniques to print from our lino blocks including using the amazing Xcut Xpress printing press.
Everything you need will be supplied, including tea, coffee and biscuits, but please bring along a packed lunch and any ideas or inspiration that you would like to include in your work. You are welcome to bring your own fabric inks (such as Lumiere) if you have them, your own lino if you have a preferred type that you like to use, and any tools that you have.
