We’re sorry, this experience is not able to go ahead right now.
Due to the current Covid restrictions, this experience is unable to take place during December 2020.
Every booking - regardless of when this takes place, will play a part in helping our local businesses to survive this challenging time and help them bounce back when we are able to visit them in person again.
Book something to look forward to or gift to someone special for when lockdown is over, or to celebrate a brand new year!
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.
