Friday 19th MAY
Duration: 3 hours
Location: UNIT 36, STUDIO NL, The Manor, Main Street, Tur Langton, Leicestershire, LE8 0PJ
Do I need to bring any thing with me: Bring your own wine/beer, we'll be serving tea, coffees and prosecco on arrival
(An introduction to stamp making)
Printing and Prosecco, what could go wrong? A sliced finger or two maybe but we'll pop that thought aside.
During your p r e s s : e c c o evening we will go through the process of carving and printing your own block step by step, this includes everything from how to transfer your image onto Lino, safety rules, carving techniques, ink application and the use of a baren, aka wooden spoon/palm of your hand. You'll receive your very own printing kit with all the necessities for printing during the course and at home. With friendly guidance and a few glasses of prosecco we'll have an amazing evening together where you'll leave feeling proud of what you have achieved, relaxed, and excited to carry on using your new skill at home.
Printing kits include:
basic carving gauge with multiple blades
Selection of soft carve blocks
Black ink pad
Selection of paper/cards
All in a fancy box that you can also print on.
Please bring basic pencil case stationary:
And a design of your choice (no bigger than A5). This can be anything from a photo of your fave pet/landscape to something you have drawn yourself or even a fave quote in fancy type (not too fancy though) anything you'd like to print, bring it!
