Join artist Alix Almond for this one-day introductory course to learn the process of linocut printmaking. 

You will experiment with a range of tools to design and create your image, before hand-printing your design to create your own edition of single-colour prints or greeting cards.

This workshop is suitable for both beginners and those with previous linocut experience. For those that want to continue their printmaking adventures at home, guidance will be given on materials and equipment. Prepare to be bitten by the printing bug!

All materials are included,  and tea and coffee is provided. For lunch, visit our bar and kitchen Benugo, or bring a packed lunch.
