How about treating yourself a day with like-minded people, a homemade lunch some mulled wine, and the chance to learn a new skill and to hand make your Christmas cards??
Would you like to make your own hand-printed Christmas cards or gift tags? Can you do basic tracing? Then you are fully skilled to make beautiful linocut Christmas cards. Lino cutting is the most accessible form of printing; in less than an hour you can make a wonderful design by using special gouging tools to remove slivers of rubber from an easy-cut lino block.
Linocut enthusiast and trainer Hannah McDowall will support you during a day workshop at Sipala.
We will produce a few lino-blocks and other design ideas for example and you are free to use them too. For the first of the worshop Hannah will help you to cut your own 10cm x 10cm design and will provide lots of inspirational images to get you started.
After lunch the second half of the workshop is for printing. We will provide red and white card, and a few different ink colour options.
Everyone will go away with at least 10 Christmas cards. But even better you will go away with your lino block; which means you can make more cards whenever you want.
