go to Singing Workshops 2017

Lino printing day
Sunday 2 April, 10.30am - 4.30pm
Cost: £60 (materials and lunch included)


This one day workshop offers a practical introduction to the process of making a linocut, from your first inspiration to the actual print. Through simple exercises we explore the striking possibilities of designing in black and white, developing an initial sketch to a workable design, transfer this onto the block, carve and then print. No previous experience required.


Lino printing in Colour
Saturday 29 July July, 9.30am - 6pm
Cost: £80
(materials and lunch included)

This extende workshop will help you explore the entire relief print process from sketching your subject material to transforming your studies and sketches into a design for a multi-coloured lino print. The subject matter is free and could be the landscape, a still life or something from your own sketchbook or imagination. This workshop is about having time to work out a wellplanned relief print design and get it cut and printed in more than one colour, using the multi-block method.

The multi-colour process of course takes more time. To fit it all into one day we are starting early and finishing a bit later than usual. We have some residential places available for people who come from further away. (£50 per night, evening meal included)

(This is a repeat from the same workshop on April 2nd)


Book making in a day
Sunday 1 October, 10.30am - 4.30pm
Cost: £70 (materials and lunch included)

As a printmaker and framer I always have stacks of paper, card and discarded prints lying around, which I love to make into unique and personal sketchbooks or notebooks. In this workshop you'll do just that. In the morning we'll be working on creating your own cover papers, in the afternoon we'll put together two different bindings for small sketchbooks. Expect to go home with two hand finished gems.

This workshop makes a great combination with the lino printing day on the preceding Saturday. Residential options are available for people who wish to do both workshops.

NB: Due to a busy exhibitions schedule this year I had to reduce the number of workshops in my programme to the above four days. For more information about my exhibitions and artworks see www.peterursem.co.uk
