Workshops Offered:

Linocut Printmaking is a fun way to make individual artworks, or to create repetitive designs on paper or fabric. I provide a supportive environment, individual attention, and all the tools and materials, including non toxic water soluble inks. Both simple and advanced options will be explored from single colour prints to multi-colour reduction printing. I provide plenty of visual examples and demonstrations. Participants will take away multiple prints on paper or fabric and hopefully a desire to try more printmaking!

(4 hour workshop, all materials included, $100) 

Please inquire about future dates. Special arrangements can be made for small groups of 3 - 7.
