Lino Print for Textiles

with Clare Dales

Sat 24 February
10:30 am
- 4:00 pm


About the Workshop

This day long workshop will focus on the use of patterns and colours in lino printing.

Participants will learn how to design and cut lino blocks to create a simple image to create stunning effects with repeat pattern.

Also known as lino cutting, this method of printing is a printmaking technique that goes back to the early 20th century. It is an effective method for creating multiple prints of an artistic piece using linoleum.

Using the works displayed in our current exhibition Double Weave: Bourne and Allen’s Modernist Textiles, and permanent collection as a starting point, we will explore various designs on paper before using your favourite design to print a tea towel to take home.

About the Artist

Clare is a freelance designer and printmaker, a member of Lewes Printmakers, creating collaborative books and exhibitions. Clare has published several books, including Ponds Pools and Lidos, A Swim through Time, Eastbourne An Alphabet and Limited Edition Artists Books, including Pier to Pier, The Egrets Way and Flow. Currently working on a Limited Edition book on food and cooking, expected late 2023, Clare’s work is sought by private Reserve Collections in the UK and abroad.

Clare’s background in architecture inspirees pieces from the built and natural form, drawing parallels between the two, to design unique works.  Clare loves to create repeat patterns, used in illustrative work, home furnishings and bookbinding. With a desire to evolve and create, Clare’s more recent additions are printed greenhouses, with drawn natural forms. Using dipping pens and coloured pencils allows a lustre and individuality. Inspiration is everywhere.  Learning to swim aged 40 resulted in the most recent book, Ponds Pools & Lidos, richly illustrated with lino prints.
