DESCRIPTION

Join local artist Hannah Shepheard for a relaxing day of flower picking and exploring the medium of linoprint.

Based at the beautiful gardens of Blooming Green, this workshop will allow you to explore the garden and pick your own bunch of flowers. We will then use these to draw inspiration from, studying the flowers and foliage to design and create your own linocut block which works as a repeat pattern. Your block will then be used to print your pattern on a material bag as well as create exciting designs on paper. Whether you are new to linocut or feel the need for a refresher course, this class will provide you with the knowledge and techniques to create a linocut print with confidence as you learn to handle the tools and materials and explore colour. The tranquil setting and mindful activity of flower picking and creating artwork go beautifully together and it is sure to be a thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing and productive day.
