Lino Printing With Jeb Nichols
We have asked Jeb to return by popular demand!
Jeb is a practising artist, printmaker and experienced teacher who is in demand to run courses throughout the UK. Enjoy a day in the studio exploring linocut techniques. Linocut is a traditional relief printing method in which pieces of lino are cut away using special carving tools to create a design. The lino block is then inked up using a roller, and printed onto paper either by hand or using a traditional printing press.
£35 per person based on 8 people to include basic materials for the day. Food available from the café, if pre booked a healthy buffet lunch can be provided for £5.
