What you'll do

In this workshop you will learn how to create a Black and White Lino Block Print. The workshop takes place at Hout Bay Contemporary my studio gallery which is filled with beautifully curated works from myself and other local artists and designers. The workshop provides a complete overview of the printmaking process from designing your A5 image, hand carving your block right through to printing your image on my printmaking press. I go through each step in detail, all the while sharing with you my experience and unique tips and tricks. The workshop prices also includes all materials meaning it is not necessary to bring or prepare anything but guests are welcome to bring visual references if they like. My space can accommodate a maximum of six people, so groups are always small and the setting is quite intimate. Should prints not be dry and able to take home on the day I normally mail the artworks to the preferred destination for an additional fee relative to the guest country of origin. Workshops are from 10:00 - 16:00 and include a lunch break. I provide coffee, tea biscuits at no extra cost. For lunch I can recommend any of the surrounding restaurants in our shopping village called Fisherman's World. All restaurants are within walking distance. Printmaking truly is my passion and I would love to share a day of creative exploration with you!
