There'll be a range of demonstrations throughout the day and you should complete 2-3 prints to take away. I will cover how to transfer drawings onto your linocut and will show you how to blend colours when printing. This course is suitable for people who've done a bit of printing or other art forms before, or beginners.


About the tutor

Lizzie Mee

Lizzie Mee’s prints often explore plant life/botanical themes. She has also made work with links to historical research. Some of her abstract patterned prints are a meditation on the roles of women, time and the success and failure of art to change lives (and what that might mean).
“I think of my art as a means of looking at the world in fresh ways. Depending on the motivation behind the work it can be tense, comfortable or melodic. Most of my works involve pattern, as well as natural/organic forms. I like to think of my works as a lightly layered surface and I’m aiming for a meditative experience of looking.
I love my teaching and I love print so it seems like a natural thing to do them together. I always bring lots of ideas and examples as it’s useful for people to see the possibilities. It’s also important to teach quite a few skills (often through demonstrations) but I am most pleased when people have managed to pursue their own idea and found their own language in print. I think the process of making art is very individual. The confidence to enjoy a new process enough to explore it for yourself does take a bit of time but a workshop is a really good way to start.”
