Where: Online (Zoom)
Cost: £30 (the cost includes an Essdee Taster Lino-Art Kit posted to you)
Over the two hours we have together, Gemma will take you through the lino-printing process from start to finish. We’ll being with a few warm-up drawing skills, leading into some linocutting techniques and a demonstration on how to transfer your design onto a lino-block. Over the second part of the workshop, you’ll learn how to carve your design and finally how to make a print!
This session will be open for up to 15 people, thus providing a friendly atmosphere, where guidance and support can take place.
There will be an option to have cameras off or on, depending on your comfort.
We’re looking forward to bringing a group of lovely queer women and non-binary people together to learn a new creative skill online!
If you have any access requirements you would like me to know about before the workshop, please email us.
