This day is designed as a masterclass in the morning and an afternoon workshop. You will have the opportunity to learn about being a printmaker and to develop your lino skills with artist and illustrator Hannah Firmin.
The day will begin with a talk by Hannah about her life as an artist and illustrator.
Hannah trained at Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art and was tutored by such people as Susan Einzig, Quentin Blake and Sheila Robinson amongst others. For many years she has worked as a freelance Illustrator working for publishers, magazines and design groups all over the world. Hannah always used a ‘hand printed’ technique for the artwork, developing a specific style using woodcuts, linocuts and collage.
We will then have a short masterclass with discussion and the ability to look through Hannah's work in her portfolios.
After lunch there will be a lino-printing workshop with places limited to 10 people.
The lunch break is a great opportunity to go and see our exhibition The Printed Line in our gallery on the 2nd floor which features over 40 printed works from the Arts Council Collection.
