If you still want to attend this class, please first consider government restrictions in QLD. If you are currently allowed to attend, but are later prevented from doing so, we will either postpone your booking, or refund you. You are always welcome to gift this class.

In this 3 hour workshop you will learn the skills of Linocut printmaking, and print your very own hand-cut works on paper. Once learned, this versatile and accessible technique can be applied to the creation of artist’s books, textile design, poster design and limited edition prints.

This class will cover carving out your image from a Silk Cut plate, line work and cutting techniques, safety, correct inking of a plate and hand printing. You will also be advised on how to hand colour your prints and introduce textures into your work.

You will take home a striking set of your own prints, your lino plate, full instructions and resource pdfs so you have the ability to print at home using this technique!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class

I thought that Chris and Claudia from Grey Hand Press were fabulous. They carefully and easily explained what and how to do each step, from the design/drawing to the WHS of cutting right through to how to ink and print your piece to get an effective look.

They provided all the tools and materials that you needed to achieve your final result.

The workspace area was well setup and roomy enough for the group to move around. Having a coffee shop out the front really helps as well.

I would recommend their workshop to anyone and will be looking into other workshops that they run.

Thank you so much.

A great night of creativity and learning new skills. Both tutors were helpful and very knowledgeable, sharing tips that we could take away with us to continue exploring the art of linocut. I was glad to be able to bring home a piece that I created during the workshop but also something that I can continue to work on and and see it evolve. Thank you!

The Lino printing class was EXCELLENT! Right mix of instruction before learning through experience. Chris and Claudia were available for consultation and I was able to print off several prints on different paper. Great value for money - wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and can’t wait to sign up for another class
