11am – 4pm
Join us for this seasonal printmaking workshop and learn to make your own edition of nature inspired lino prints. Ruth & Sarah from Folded Forest will guide you through the process of creating and developing your image, carving your design into the block using specialist cutting tools, inking up your plate and printing using traditional hand printing techniques.
We will be inspired by the beautiful shapes and forms of the natural world in Autumn; leaves, berries, branches and seedheads, many of which can be spotted around the grounds of Harewood. With plenty of time for experimentation, lots of examples to look at and the support & guidance of two experienced printmakers you will create a unique run of small prints to keep for yourself or share with family and friends.
You will take home a set of prints and your original lino block to continue printing with at home if you wish. You will be provided with your own set of beginners cutting tools to work with during the workshop, and these will be yours to take home with you at the end of the day.
Enjoy a delicious seasonal two-course lunch from the Harewood Food & Drink Project, included as part of your day.
No previous experience of printmaking is necessary. You may bring ideas, images or objects to work with or just be inspired by our range of examples on the day. Please bring an apron to protect your clothes.
Please make your way to the entrance to the Courtyard on arrival at Harewood, where a member of staff will be there to greet you.
Refreshments and two course lunch will be provided on the day. Please notify us upon booking of any dietary requirements you may have.
Please make sure you wear a mask inside the Courtyard building, when you are not seated.
