We will meet in my printmaking studio at Södermalm, right in the heart of Stocholm where you will create one or more black and white linocut prints. I will start by showing you how a print is made from start to finish and after that you're ready to start designing, carving and printing. At the end of the session you will take your print home with you. The workshop will include: - introduction, I will show and explain all the steps of linoprinting. No previous experience is needed. Everyone can make a linocut. - drawing your design. If you want you can prepare what you want to print in advance. The size of the linoblocks we will use are 15x20 cm. It’s also perfectly fine if you don’t prepare anything. - carving the linoblock - inking the block - printing, we will use first quality printmaking paper All the tools and supplies such as paper, ink and cutting knifes are first class artist quality. During the session I will prepare tea and some snacks for you.
My name is Anna, I'm a printmaker, architect, mother of three and an avid traveller. Three years ago I felt stuck. My architectural business was doing fine, life with my three kids was fine. Nevertheless, I felt stuck. Getting my hands dirty creating art was the answer. Once I started with printmaking I just wanted those moments to last forever. I started exploring and studying different printmaking techniques such as linocut, intaglio, screen print, collagraphy and Japanese woodblock printing. Deepening my skills in art with the dream of inspiring others to take a pause from their everyday lives and create. Now, three years later, I have my own gallery and printmaking workshop in central Stockholm. For me, making art is a path to freedom and I want to invite you to share the joy of printmaking with me.
I will serve tea and a light snack.
All supplies needed to make a beautiful linocut art print will be provided.
The experience will take place in my bright and newly renovated printmaking studio located at Södermalm, right in the heart of Stockholm.
