Alternative Linocut Christmas Cards - Thursday November 16th

At The Makers Studio - Shadwell


Love a bold print? This workshop is for you! Join artist Kaylene Alder as she teaches you how to draw, cut and print your own A6 lino-printed design in a single colour. You will print several of your design - in different colours and on card blanks to carry your holiday greetings far and wide. You will be able to take your printing block away to continue your printing adventure at home.

The inspiration for the workshop is 'Alternative Christmas Cards' but all ideas / inspirations are welcome.

This workshop is for ages 18 and older. All materials will be provided but you may wish to wear old clothes and / or bring an apron along. 

All Maker's Studio workshops come with delicious refreshments (tea, coffee, wine and brownies!) homemade on site here at SPS House. If you have any dietary requirements please don't hesitate to let us know and we'll ensure there is something lovely for you to enjoy as you're making.
