Lino printing is a simple form of fine art printmaking. 

Traditionally lino is used like a printing plate partly because it is cheap, and also it leaves no texture of its own. You will be experimenting with a few materials that can be easier to cut into. The lino/plate is then inked, a piece of paper placed over it, and pressure applied by hand, press or back of spoon to transfer the ink to the paper. The result, a linocut print. This is quite a simple process with often dramatic results.

 BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW

The easiest style of lino print is a single-color print. You cut the design once, and print it using one colour only. You often see black used because of its strong contrast to white paper. In this workshop you will explore different tools and different marks. AND produce a linocut print. 

You will need to buy the basic introduction lino kit, and some cartridge paper. Then you will be ready to Learn About Lino

Once you have used this workshop to learn about lino you can progress to more complicated approaches.

The CASS art kit is on offer reduced from £29.99 to £19.95

Spring Classes and Resolutions


The New Year, a New Decade, is on the horizon.  This is a good time for you to make art one of your New Year’s Resolutions

I make resolutions every year – some I keep, some I don’t. Whatever happens it is a good moment to pause, and look forward.

This coming year I plan to spend more time painting, and to set the time aside in my diary. Second on my to-do list is to take courses so I can try new ways of doing things.  I have my eye on Antony Williams and his Egg Tempera course at the end of February. 

Below are a number of courses so YOU can set time aside, on a regular basis. There is something for everyone from Beginners Drawing Taster morning, to Lino Printing, Oil Painting courses and Acrylic courses. Try the Introduction to Abstract Expressionist Painting if you are interested in non-figurative work.  If you have done a bit of oil painting but want to learn more try the Intermediate Oil Painting classThe Drawing into Oil Painting for Beginners course will build up your skills month by month, with time in the studio and work to do at home.

Art you and New Year's resolution

New this year is the Art Club.  The studio is open on Wednesdays for the club, from 10.00 – 5.00. It is a great place to get away from the regular cares of life, and paint or draw without distraction.  There are tables, easels, tea and coffee, a beautiful view plus time  to chat and compare notes with other artists. On the second Wednesday of each month there will be a life model in the evening from 6.00-9.00pm. This is included in the Club fee.
