This workshop is limited to 10 people.

In this two-hour workshop you will learn how to carve and print a lino block to create an image that can be used for a Christmas card or gift labels. Tutor Lucy Brett will guide you through this simple, relief-printing method and show you the work of artists who have used linocut to produce designs. She will show you ways in which you can explore the medium further at home.

The cost for this Linocut Christmas Card workshop includes:

  • two blocks
  • a linocutting tool
  • ink
  • a roller
  • five blank cards (with envelopes) to print on

With these basics, you will be able to continue to create lovely prints at home.

About the Tutor

Lucy read English & French Literature at Oxford University and then trained as a secondary school teacher in London. After several years of teaching, she changed course and studied Fine Art Painting and Printmaking at the City and Guilds of London Art School in Kennington.

Since then, she has combined art teaching with her own creative practice and lived in the French Alps, Bristol and London. She has exhibited in the UK and internationally. After the birth of her son in 2012, she shifted her focus to illustration so that she could work from the kitchen table at home. Printmaking is still a passion.
