any aspiring printmaker.
12 - Lino Printing
May; Sat 15th - Mon 17th £220
In three days you will be able to design, cut and print at least one piece of work in one or more colours,
depending on size and complexity. This course is suitable for all levels of ability from the complete beginner
to the more adventurous and imaginative printmaker. With Richard's constant encouragement and
guidance, beginners will be taken step by step through every process, and the more experienced
printmaker will be urged to experiment with new techniques and to widen their design horizons.

Richard's expertise and enthusiasm will inspire the beginner and experienced printmaker to reach new

Perspex plate; shading and tone can then be created with cross hatching or mezzotint.
Students will be encouraged to develop prints with varied textures and effects, using one or more colours.
No experience is necessary; some sketch book ideas, or images to work from, could be helpful.
Jan originally trained as a painter but switched to textile art. She is a highly talented and innovative
practitioner who inspires all whom she teaches to explore and develop their creativity. Her ability to
manipulate threads and fabrics using both traditional and new techniques has made her courses and
lectures much sought after both in this country and all over the world. During the 1980's and more recently
Jan presented several highly acclaimed television programmes, taking skills with textiles beyond the
practical and domestic to a new status. Together with Jean Littlejohn she founded Double Trouble
Enterprises through which they publish their own authoritative books and DVD's which have become
classics in their field.
In 2006 on the centenary of the Embroiderers Guild Jan together with Jean were jointly presented with the
“Best Teacher Award”, a highly deserved accolade.
Jan is a member of the '62 group of textile artists and her work forms part of public and private collections
throughout the world.
