Spend the day learning the basic techniques of linocut printmaking from printmaker Hester Cox. You will learn how to design an image suitable for linocut, how to use tools to cut your design and how to ink and hand-print your linocut to create lovely graphic prints inspired by the Yorkshire Dales.
We anticipate that this course will run with between 4 and 10 participants.
