For this special Christmas edition of the SPAB members' skill-share, we are thrilled to welcome Dr Penny Streeter, art historian and linocut artist, for an introduction to linocutting. 

Join us to learn the basics of making lino prints at home. We'll be looking at how to turn your house into a simple design which can be transferred to lino - perhaps you could even make your own Christmas cards?

This short session will cover:

  • the basic equipment needed 
  • how to make a simple design that would translate into a print
  • how to transfer the design onto the lino and cut it
  • inking up in a single colour
  • printing by hand

 

About the speaker: Penny is a SPAB member, with a PhD (2018), MA and BA all in History of Art from the University of Sussex.  She has studied various kinds of printmaking to use in her own practice and for about 15 years taught design and history of interiors to adults on full-time further education courses in Sussex.

Penny is also the artist behind the beautiful new SPAB greeting cards, now available in our shop.
