What you'll do

Make a set of lino cut, hand-printed cards, postcards, posters or bookmarks to adorn your home or share as unique gifts. You'll discover how linocut art prints are made, by designing and printing a selection of cards in this private experience for two people.

You'll be crafting on the heated front deck of a 1970s ‘Caribbean cruiser’ in Portishead Marina. Your host, Barbara, an award winning local artist and sculptor based on Portishead marina, will have everything you need including inspiration, imagery, stencils, hand-carved stamps, printing inks, soft cut lino blocks and tools; there are images of coastal birds to work from for a local seaside flavour if you feel inspired by your marina setting!

You’ll print with your choice of a range of colours using water based inks, onto high quality printing paper, as you create your own handmade gifts in a lovely waterside setting.
