Lino Cut Cards and Papers
Clare Dales - Thursday 14 November

Explore the medium of lino cutting to create your own stunning Christmas cards and wrapping paper.

The day will begin by learning how to master cutting, and how to make a variety of marks and lines in the lino. After experimenting how to introduce pattern into your work, how to print and layer colour, we'll design and create our own papers and cards for that special personal touch to Christmas. You take home your own stamp so the creativity can continue.

Clare is a well-known artist and author and runs a small design and print company on the South Coast. She makes carefully crafted lino prints, inspired by architecture, microscopic natural forms, patterns and landscape. Sharing her knowledge and skill, Clare loves to inspire others to try their hand at this age old and immensely rewarding art-form. All materials are provided and there will be an opportunity to purchase a box of essential equipment to take away with you.

No previous experience required

If you have any particular motif or design you might like to try, please bring this printed on paper only as we can not replicate digital designs - eg something on your phone.
