Classes and Workshops
From total beginners with no artistic background, to accomplished creatives hoping to tap into something new, I've brought lino printmaking classes to students both young and not so young. FUN and ACCESSIBILITY are the key aspects of classes that my students enjoy most (and also some cool printing!)
My classes take students through every foundation from explaining the basics principles of what Lino printmaking is all about, to providing clear step-by-step procedures, and hands-on practice, through personal and group projects. I teach the fundamentals of how to properly prepare, avoid common mistakes, and take a free-thinking approach to being inventive and creative in your work. I also explain tools, implements and alternative sources for mark making. I share over 30 years of commitment to this art form - so there are lots to learn and enjoy in these classes.
Throughout these classes I tailor guidance towards what my students are comfortable with, while gently encouraging them forward with an abundance of patience (this was a key attribute of my own training).
As well as providing many tips and helpful guides that I've learned over 30 years, these classes have been noted for the therapeutic qualities that lino cutting practice is known for.
