Your chance to go BIG in Hastings! This unique two day experience will be fun, challenging and rewarding, and will suit both novice and advanced printers alike. There will be lots of technical help and cake on both days.
Day 1: Design day - transfer your design from a print out or draw directly on to your 1m x 1m piece of lino and use a variety of tools to make your cut. If you don't finish on the day, don't worry, you will be able to take it home with some tools and bring it back with you on print day a few weeks later. Max of 4 people per day (please note: because of the costs involved, we need 4 bookings for the workshop to go ahead).
Day 2: Print day - ink up, lay down the paper and ride the road roller over it! Participants will get to make at least two giant prints from their cut using a variety of colours. As you can imagine, it's a fun and hands on process, we will all muck in prepping, inking, printing and riding riding the roller. You will be able to take your prints home on the day. Max of 8 people per day.
10am-5pm, all materials and refreshments are included.
