Do you yearn to take some creative time for yourself? Book a lino-print workshop with Kim today and take a step on a printmaking journey that Kim guarantees you won't regret!

Kim has been an art teacher for 20 years with a background in screen-print and she is currently teaching weekly classes to adults alongside her own printmaking practice.

Kim's home studio is based in leafy green Forest Hill and the space is wonderfully light and peaceful with a huge window looking out on mature trees and gardens.

This workshop will use the exciting technique of lino-cut & you will learn how to create a design/composition & how to transfer this to your lino as well as using the tools safely to cut your block. This will lead into the wonderfully messy bit where you ink your block & begin making a series of prints. You will have the options to experiment with different colours of both inks & papers, to achieve different results.

All materials will be provided.

This workshop can cater for the needs of individuals, whether you are a complete beginner or a print-maker looking to refresh and develop your skills. Workshop sizes are small to allow space as well as individual teaching & support.

Kim will also introduce the technique of 'reduction' printing, where the same block is used, yet more of the design is cut away between prints & new layers of colours are added. We can also explore some chine colle methods, using colourful tissue collage layers & printing over the top!

Why not consider something with a festive theme that could be made into your own cards later!

Most of the printmaking will be done by hand, however the studio is equipped with a beautifully new A2+ printmaking press made by a company based in Ironbridge and you are welcome to have a go!

Please bring a selection of images with you to help with your lino design ideas. These can come from photocopies, photographs, magazines, newspapers, wrapping paper and scraps of printed fabrics, patterns etc, anything you find that appeals to you! Kim will also have a bank of images that you are welcome to use too.

The workshop will last for 3 hours and in this time you will create a series of prints to take home with you. Hopefully you will have caught the printmaking bug, if you haven't got it already!

You will enjoy, as Kim affectionately calls it, 'elevenses' halfway through the morning, in the form of coffee and homemade cake! Printmaking is enormous fun and the making process really feeds the soul!

Did you know?

Although linoleum is a floor covering that dates to the 1860s, the linocut printing technique was used first by the artists of Die Brücke in Germany between 1905 and 1913, where it had been similarly used for wallpaper printing.

Fantastic class - as a beginner I have found Kim is an extremely friendly, patient and understanding teacher. The class is small and great fun, with people of a range of abilities who are also very supportive!! The venue in Kim’s home is light, airy and well equipped- with Bess the printing machine ready and waiting to be fed! I have improved my skills in a few short weeks and am inspired to continue my printmaking journey. And then there is the fresh coffee and delicious homemade cake- who could ask for more?! Love this class!!

I have just completed two printmaking classes with Kim at her home studio and I cannot praise her enough for the experience. Not only is Kim an extremely knowledgeable and inspiring teacher but she has the ability to coax out the inner printmaker in all of her students. She was on hand to give me advice at every point of the printing process, which made me feel totally at ease while I was working. Kim encourages you to use a range of coloured inks and paper and to experiment and incorporate other materials making the whole experience a wonderfully creative occasion. I was so thrilled with my final prints that I think I’m going to get a couple of them framed!

Kim is warm, fun and a great teacher. Her workshops are wonderful and even as a complete beginner you learn so much and you can create your own beautiful art to take home. Kim’s studio is bright and calm, and she prepares the most delicious homemade treats. A lovely experience that I highly recommend.

This is a wonderful class. Kim is inspirational and fun as well as being a professional teacher. I’ve been going to her classes for a year. We try all types of printmaking and Kim encourages us to experiment and define our skills. The sessions make me happy, my work is improving........and her home made cake is divine!

I have done lino-printing before, but a long time ago, so it was useful to see how the material has advanced. Kim provided new-style 'lino' and tools and gave me an informative print out of different styles of printing that could also be available in the class. It was a relaxed and very friendly class, the other people attending had been for different lengths of time and their work was very inspiring. Kim left me to have a go and find out what I could do, but equally was on hand to give advice or offer examples of what could be achieved. I was made to feel welcome straight away and would absolutely recommend the workshop. You can easily go home with a print you have done in the class!

I loved the class. Very easy to find and after class I was just taking pictures, because the naborhud was so beautiful. Kim was really friendly, welcome and helpful every step. I learned new ways to do lino prints, that I didn't know about. The coffee and the cake was a really nice treat.

About your host, Kim Minuti - Printmaking

All workshops run from the home printmaking studio of Kim Minuti.

An art teacher with 20 years experience and a background in screen-print, Kim loves everything about 'print'! Already running weekly workshops alongside her own printmaking practice, selling her work online as well as through Open Studio events and local galleries/retailers.

Kim is keen to share her skills with people who yearn for some creativity in their lives and some valuable, enriching time for themselves.

The studio is equipped with a beautiful A2+ printmaking press hand built by a specialist maker in Ironbridge, lots of natural light and a calm space to relax and create. Printmaking is a varied medium & extremely suited to experimentation.

The studio can offer classes in monotype, dry-point, lino and collagraph printmaking. Class sizes are small, to allow supportive teaching and an informal atmosphere to encourage collaboration. Classes are well suited to complete beginners, as well as print-makers looking to develop skills in a particular medium or as refresher opportunities.

After each class you will be rewarded with your own art to take away with you and you will feel enriched & revived!

Notes

Printmaking is messy business so please don't wear your best outfit! An old shirt or mucky apron is ideal. Halfway through the workshop homemade cake and tea & coffee will be served as a vital way to re-energise as well as to collaborate, contemplate and just have a friendly chat! Please remember to bring along your selection of images too. The studio is just outside bus stops served by the P4 service, yet there are many other bus routes and stops within a 10-15 minute walk. It is also equidistant to both the Forest Hill & Honor Oak Park train stations. Both are served by the Southern train service running from London Bridge as well as the Overground. If you are driving then there is parking available directly outside.
