Suitable for beginners and those with experience, this half-day workshop will give you the opportunity to create a multi-colour print using the jigsaw block technique. Participants are requested to bring a few photo print-outs or sketches of favourite Lake District mountains in A5 size. Bringing pre-selected images and ideas enables us to spend more time printing on the day. And if you are struggling for ideas, we can help with that too – even people who say they cannot draw, create beautiful linocut prints. By the end of the workshop you’ll have designed, cut and printed your own artworks, which can be framed or made into cards.

Please bring an apron to protect your clothes, & reading glasses if you wear them.

Your Tutor:  Emily Brooks

An artist, printmaker and mountain enthusiast, Emily mostly works in relief printmaking and is constantly inspired by the mountainous landscapes she immerses herself within. Usually, just a brief moment or a passing glimpse triggers a desire to create. Each experience is held, allowing it time to develop as a memory and work only begins once the memory has settled.

The most enduring aspects of any scene are consequently the ones that feature most prominently; a larger than life mountain, a simplified pattern, exaggerated negative spaces – all linked by the desire to cherish and share the lived connection between the landscape and the viewer.
