Individual Tutorials

I am now offering hour-long individual tutorial sessions whereby we can work together to achieve your creative goals. Dates and times are flexible and can be arranged at any mutually convenient time. Do get in touch for more details.

Introduction to Linocut

Saturday 19th September 11-2pm – FULL
Sunday 25th October 4-7pm – FULL

It is a 3-hour class where you will learn the basics of linocut – how to use the tools, create and carve your own design and ink and print it successfully. You will need your own basic kit eg carving tools, lino, roller, inks and paper – I will send you a list as soon as you book with everything you need to get along with suggestions on where to source the materials.

Reduction Linocut

Saturday 24th October 11-2pm – FULL
Sunday 8th November 4-7pm – 1 places

In reduction linocut (otherwise known as suicide linocut), the design is produced from one single linocut block, layering up the colour each time the linocut is cut. This technique is a challenging way to produce an edition of prints, as by the end of the session there will be little to none left of your linocut block! Detailed instructions will be given before the start of the workshop so you will have time to prepare your design and be clear about what will be achieved during the workshop.

3 Colour Block Linocut

Sunday 27th September 4-7pm – FULL
Saturday 10th October 11-2pm – FULL

In this workshop you will be using 3 separate blocks for 3 different colours. You will learn how to design, carve and print a multi block linocut in the colours of your choice and how to register the layers. At the end of the workshop you will have printed a small edition of your print. Detailed instructions will be sent out beforehand.

Introduction to Drawing

Sunday 20th September 4-7pm – FULL
Saturday 7th November 11-2pm – 3 places

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners to come along and have a go at drawing in a relaxed and supportive environment. We will look at mark-making, ways of ‘seeing’ and draw from a simple still life set up. We will use a range of materials including charcoal, pens and pencils. I will also suggest ways to incorporate drawing into your life so that it becomes a fun way to document your travels and everyday life.

Drawing from Paintings

Sunday 11th October 4-7pm – 2 places
Saturday 21st November 11-2pm – 3 places

This workshop is suitable for those who have some experience with drawing or have done my ‘Introduction to Drawing’ workshop. In the workshop you will be drawing from a selection of paintings from art galleries around the world, this term we will be looking at paintings from the Tate Modern in London. Working from the masters is one of best ways to look at art. By drawing from the paintings you will begin to learn how paintings ‘work’ and in turn enhance your drawing skills. We will also look at the paintings together and analyse them as a group.

The Print Clinic

Sunday 13th September 4-7pm – FULL
Sunday 18th October 4-7pm – 5 places

The print clinic is a 3-hour session for up to 7 students who have completed my other print workshops or for those who are more experienced in printmaking. The session is an opportunity to work on your own printmaking projects amongst other students and to have the opportunity to ask me specific questions about your work and progression. You will each have a private 10- minute session with me in a break out room. These sessions will run monthly and are an ideal way to structure your practice and learn from others in a supportive and creative environment.
