janet dickson  printmaker

 workshop programme - spring/summer 2018

The start of a new year is a great time to plan a creative day out. In all of our printmaking workshops you will be working in my studio, in a small group, with a maximum of six students which allows for lots of individual tuition.You might be learning something completely new or expanding upon your current practice, but whatever your starting point you will be going home with your very own series of prints.

A delicious home made lunch is part of your day, taken in our cosy cottage kitchen.
All that and printmaking too - what a day!

Reluctantly, we have had to increase our prices slightly, from £75 to £80 due to some increased costs.

The cost of each one day workshop is £80 which includes all materials and a delicious lunch in our cottage kitchen. 

Students will be introduced to a ‘Reduction” technique of making linocuts, creating a multicoloured print from a single piece of lino. You will use both hand printing techniques and a press, to print a number of copies in up to three colours. At the end of the day you will take away unique prints as well as gaining sufficient experience to continue on your own at home.
No previous experience is required - this course is designed for complete beginners to enjoy, and/or those with some previous experience.

Group size will be a maximum of 6 students to allow for plenty of personal attention to guide you through the process. If the workshop that interests you is full, please get in touch in case a place becomes available later. Contact me.
What to bring
All materials for the day will be provided, but you might like to consider and bring any visual ideas or reference images you might like to work with in particular. Protective gloves will be provided, but whilst these are latex free, they do contain powder and you will be using water-soluble inks and solvent free cleaning materials. Please bring an apron to protect your clothes.

Further dates for additional workshops will be added at a later date.

Book a linocut workshop.

Alternatively, If you have a group of friends, with a maximum of 6 people, and would like me to run a day's workshop specifically for you, with a delicious lunch provided, do let me know and we can talk about dates.
