Join us for a relaxed, fun and enjoyable afternoon at Conclave in our linocut printing workshop: print your own tote bag with EJ Sparkles in our lovely events space. Create a totally unique gift for yourself or someone else.
In this 3-and-a-half hour workshop, you will create a stamp using the linocut technique and then print onto a tote bag. There will also be a selection of ink colours to choose from.
Printmaker EJ Sparkles will guide you step-by-step through the process. You can draw your own design – bring an idea, or simply use one of the images provided (and there’s a gallery full of inspiration right here ready for you too!) This will be a small group workshop (limited to 10 participants) so you’ll be sure to get all the help and support you need.
At the end of the workshop, you will leave with a unique hand-printed item of your own making and the basic knowledge of the linocut process which can then be continued at home if you so wish (and use those skills to make some other unique Christmas cards and gifts)
We’ll provide you with a new cotton tote bag (your choice of natural cotton, or coloured cotton) and all the materials and inks you will need to create your masterpiece.
