Make your own linoprints in my fully equipped local workshop. A safe, welcoming and non-judgemental environment where all abilities are encouraged. I offer tailor-made workshops, one-to-one guidance or small group sessions. Group sessions work well as you share the cost of £120 between you as well being able to 'bounce' ideas off each other!
Linoprinting is straightforward and you can achieve great results in a relatively short amount of time. By cutting away the soft surface of a piece of lino and using a roller to apply the water-based ink, you'll discover the thrill and immediacy of this wonderful artform. Accompanied children aged 8+ are welcome and would work with a softer polystyrene block to create their own artwork.
The cost includes use of all art materials- paper, tools and inks, access to two presses as well as a light lunch. Refreshments are also available throughout the day.
Previous workshop attendee, Heidi, said, 'Attending Sorrell's linocutting workshop was the boost to my confidence I needed! Lots of advice and many suggestions that helped me to improve my technique and produce a piece of work that I was truly proud of.'
Her friend, Susan added: 'Myself and friends enjoyed a lino cutting and printing workshop with Sorrell. He is a very patient, approachable tutor, we felt very welcome in his studio and had a lovely day. I will definitely be returning.'
And for a two-person workshop held in late October 2020, Sian commented: 'It has been years since I did any linoprinting and I was not feeling very enthusiastic and felt out of my comfort zone. I was quickly put at ease and not a moment was wasted. Sorrell provided everything we needed in his well-equipped studio. He explained the plan for the day and then demonstrated the process. What better way to learn a new interest?'
