Our three week course is designed to give you all the foundations you need to start print-making independently, from creating designs to exploring a range of ways to print.

Linoleum is one of the most versatile materials for creating a long-lasting print block. Learn how to carve a linoleum block in four different ways to create different styles of print. We will teach you how to design and carve your block which you can then re-use again and again.

What to bring: Just yourselves. Aprons, refreshment, biscuits and banter are all available in abundance.
"I've just finished a beginners lino print course with Ellie and loved it. Ellie is an excellent teacher and took us all through the process in a clear and fun way. I feel thoroughly inspired by what I have learnt and I hope to do more of Ellie's classes in the future" L.Ford
