This amazing workshop is brought to you by Jackie Smith and Sutton Museums and Heritage Service, in response to the amazing Little Holland House and the work of Frank Dickinson.

Explore the artwork of Frank Dickinson in a creative lino print workshop based in the artists former home. Frank Dickinson, whose work is being celebrated in this year’s Carshalton Artists Open Studio trail, was an artist, designer and craftsman who built Little Holland House in Carshalton Beeches in 1902-4.

This beginner’s introduction to linocut will encourage you to draw inspiration from the beautiful carvings, patterns and arts and crafts motifs built into the unique decoration of Frank Dickenson’s house and develop your own exciting and vibrant prints.

You will be taught how to use lino cutting tools using 2-part reduction technique using two colours. You will design and print an edition of 3-4 A6 prints during a 2.5 hour workshop. All cutting tools, inks and paper materials will be provided along with tuition and guidance from experienced artist Jackie Smith. We will be using washable inks and learning hand-printing techniques so that you can continue printing with minimal equipment at home. This workshop is suitable for beginners or those with some experience of lino printing. Bring sketchbooks and ideas with you and do visit and explore Frank Dickinson’s house before the workshop for additional ideas

Workshop will be run in a small group with max of 6 people (aged 16+). Bring along an apron or wear old clothing; tea and coffee will be provided.

Your tutor:
Jackie Smith is a local artist exhibiting in COAS at Oaks Park Studio and is a part-time tutor and Print Associate at The Art Academy, London.

Please give us as much notice as possible if you are not able to come to a course that you have booked. If you cancel with seven or more days notice, I will try to reschedule or refund your booking.
