Solarplate workshop

A beginners solarplate fine art printmaking workshop in Cambridge.

Each class will have a maximum of 4 people and the workshop will last approximately 3.5 hours. The cost of the workshop is £60 and will include materials, hot and cold drinks and homemade snacks.

You will be able to create your very own unique solarplate of 13cm x 13cm or 13 x 14cm during the workshop and then print the first of your edition on one of my Rollaco etching presses.

After drying under the boards for a week you can collect your etchings that will be encased in a presentation folder.

It will be a great way to meet new people, or book with friends at the same time and have fun  creating something unique.


Greeting card lino workshop

Saturday 16 April 2016. £50.00

This is a fun beginners workshop lino cutting onto greeting cards. £50.00 per person. From 10 - 2 pm.

Lino cutting is a relief printmaking process. An image is drawn onto a block of lino and the areas that you wish to be white are cut away with gouges using a chisel-like tool with different sized blades. The remaining block is inked up and printed.

You will be designing either two 7.5cm x 7.5cm plates or one 10cm x 15cm lino plate. You may bring some lunch with you but when we are in the studio you will be too busy to eat!

Your cards have to dry for a couple of days under the
 stacking boards. I will email you to let you know when
they are ready.

To book go here.

Testimonials

A few testimonials from corporate and private solarplate and linocutting workshops.

 

Redgate Software

"As a group of 18, we always struggle to find an activity for our team day out that everyone enjoys, but working with Jo has changed that. In the run up to the event we worked closely with Jo to shape the day and decide what activity we were going to do. Jo was extremely accommodating about how we wanted to run the workshop, as well as giving feedback based on her previous experience of what has worked well. The day itself was fantastic, everyone had a great time and we all produced beautiful prints. Jo and her friends were on hand to offer their expertise and keep us fuelled with caffeine and chocolate. I would highly recommend one of Jo’s workshop to any groups of people, large or small, novice or experienced, there really is something for everyone!"

Private client

"What I liked best about the course was the time and patience that Jo had with the students. She clearly went through each stage of the process, allowing us to take it all in but also understand the process. Jo is very very welcoming, which made the environment perfect to work and concentrate in!"
