Lino printed cards and gift tags workshop

Earlier this week we were back at Westhope College, near Craven Arms, Shropshire to run another one of our popular lino print workshops making cards and gift tags. Westhope is in the lovely Shropshire countryside and is beautiful at any time of the year and at the moment the autumn leaves are putting on a spectacular show of deep reds, orange, brown and yellow while the meadow is still green.

This workshop is devised for beginners, learning to linoprint for the first time and improvers who want to practice more. Most of the students chose to make Christmas cards and tags but the choice is yours, using a drawing, image or photo of your own to work from. At dinnertime a light lunch is provided and in the afternoon home made cake.

Our next workshop at Westhope is in the Spring on Wednesday 15th March and I'm really looking forward to seeing what new cards and gift tags the students produce.

Here is a selection of some of the designs produced this week:
