Learn the techniques of traditional linocut printmaking with artists Robin and Rosie from The Wytham Studio. On this two-day course you will explore the Botanic Garden and transform your drawings into linocut prints. Robin and Rosie work with the reduction colour printing method which they will teach you to create successful colour prints.

The entire process is done by hand with no large or prohibitively expensive equipment and their aim is to give you the confidence to continue experimenting on your own. The course will take you through sketching for printmaking, image composition, block preparation and image transfer, carving technique, inks and papers, inking up and printing.

Tickets cost £120 for the two-day course (includes a sandwich lunch on both days)
