Join Claire for an Online Linocut Printmaking Workshop.
During the tutorial, you will be carefully guided through each stage of the linocut process.
We will cover: the various types of lino and how to prepare them, how to use the carving tools with precision, the many different ways of making marks in the lino, how to plan a design, and different ways to transfer your design onto the lino, inking, blending colours by creating a gradient roll and how to get the perfect print every time.
You will be able to see the live demonstrations up close and follow along. There will be the opportunity to discuss your design ideas and you will receive individual feedback as you work.
You will need your own kit which you will learn how to use during the workshop.
After booking, Claire will send you her recommended kit list to get you started on your printmaking journey and let you know where you can order your lino and tools from.
After the workshop, you will also be emailed a copy of the Oxford Linocut Workshops guide booklet to remind you of all the techniques used on the day.
You will learn a great deal from this workshop and will gain the confidence and skills to continue printmaking at home.
The workshop will take place via Zoom and there will be a maximum of 6 guests to allow for plenty of individual tuition time.
If you have any questions at all, please do get in touch.
"Claire provided a really informative, creative and fun learning experience using two cameras including a close up of her working bench and hands so we could visually see very clearly the techniques she was using. The pace of the session was just right, with Claire offering support and advice throughout. A very relaxed environment, engaging and inspiring which, even as beginners, allowed us all to create some great work. I highly recommend!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed the online course with Claire. It was my first attempt at lino cutting but I felt at ease throughout and every step was clearly explained and demonstrated. An excellent course that I would recommend to anyone."
"Initially I was a little nervous attending this online workshop- but I really didn't have anything to feel nervous about. Claire is such a wonderful teacher, so kind and patient. I had such a brilliant time learning new things. It really doesn't matter how much or how little you know about lino printing because Claire's attentive guidance will fill you with the confidence you need to carve away peacefully and joyfully. Everyone who attended the online workshop produced such beautiful work and this was partly down to Claire's amazing teaching method. I cannot thank you enough for a delightful afternoon Claire, and the rest of the Zoom gang. I really do hope to attend another workshop with you in the near future."
"The workshop was fantastic - very well organised and Claire let everyone know in advance what we'd need for the day. We really enjoyed ourselves, would really recommend Claire's workshops!"
