people while doing a variety of arts and crafts. You will get the chance to try lots of
different techniques such as painting, drawing, collage and pastels in a fun and
relaxed environment, or you may just wish to do one or two things – the choice is
yours. No previous experience is necessary – this course is suitable for total
beginners as well as those with more experience.

Lino Printing Course

This is your last chance to try out our lino printing course, so if you have been umming and ahing about joining us, this has to be the time. Our 6-week Lino Printing
course will take you through the entire process of producing a lino print from first
ideas to finished product. Using nature and other printmakers as inspiration you will
be able to experiment with different textures and colours and develop your own
individual style to create original artworks. As sharp cutting tools are used, you must
be willing and able to follow appropriate safety guidelines.
