Venue, Timing, Cost
These day workshops are an excellent introduction to linocut printmaking, allowing you to take away techniques and methods to be able to create wonderful prints in your own home and you will find out all about the magic of printing with a spoon!
Held at Bonds Lifestyle, a wonderful venue; newly revamped and very spangly, just outside Stratford-Upon-Avon; these are single colour linocut workshops. The day will run from 9.30am - 4.30pm (approx).
The day will cost £75 and includes morning coffee/tea, light lunch and afternoon coffee and cake. It also includes tuition as well as all materials and equipment you will need on the day. You will create a hand-printed edition of either prints or greetings cards and learn techniques to take away to be able to carry on your printing adventures at home. Places per session are limited to 6 to allow for plenty of attention.

Awarded the Gold Student's Choice Certificate of Excellence on Craft Courses for five star reviews by students. Here's a couple of recent reviews:
"Alix creates amazing artwork and shares her skills and enthusiasm willingly on her workshops. Great fun in a warm friendly and relaxing group. Real value for money as Alix only has small groups so she can work one on one with everyone. Included a yummy lunch at Bonds too! I left with a new skill to create my own lino cuts at home. Thank you so much Alix. Liz Gardner xx"
"My last workshop with Alix provided Christmas presents for my grandchildren! I made a brown owl linocut, got it framed. Success.
A workshop day is a lot of things - obviously the linocutting is the main reason to attend but it’s also a fab day with like minded people in lovely surroundings with an excellent lunch. Alix is everything I like in a trainer, friendly, calm, assured and offering just enough assistance when you need it - so it’s still your own work. I’ve been to a couple of workshops and really look forward to going to more. It’s a tremendously good way to have some me time. Good for the soul.
