I’ve been on a couple of lino printing workshops, one in 2014 and one in 2018, both with Flora Arbuthnott (via VanessaArbuthnott.co.uk). The workshops took place in the beautiful Cirencester countryside. It’s a real treat to escape the hum drum and daily chores and spend time being creative in the company of other likeminded people, in a truly lovely setting. On both courses I got to experiment with lino printing and screen printing. My top tips for going on workshops would be to go prepared, on most workshops there will be lots of books and sources of inspiration to draw upon but take your note books and ideas. The time goes super- fast , so the quicker you can get going the better! Don’t miss the opportunity to ask lots of technical questions and it’s a good idea to get a list of the materials and equipment you have used on the day for future reference. Don’t wear your best clothes and remember your apron!
