Wednesday 16 – Thursday 17 November 2022
11am – 3pm
Get in the Christmas spirit and wow your friends and family with your own personalised hand made cards. Ruth & Sarah from Folded Forest will guide you through the process of creating and developing your image and carving your design into the lino block using specialist cutting tools. You will then learn how to ink up your plate and use traditional hand printing techniques to print your cards. All the techniques you learn in the workshop can be repeated at home and Ruth & Sarah will bring their relief press along so you’ll get chance to try that out too.
You will be provided with your own set of cutting tools to work with during the workshop, and these will be yours to take home with you at the end of the day. You will also take home your original lino block to continue printing with at home if you wish.
Folded Forest is the work of Ruth Viqueira and Sarah Peel. Together they design and make a range of limited edition prints & homewares, all screenprinted by hand in their small studio in Harden, West Yorkshire. They draw their inspiration from the natural world around them, printing their collection of creatures onto linen, paper & wood. You can find their work exhibited at shops and galleries across the UK and they have over 30 years of printmaking experience between them.
