What a great group of ladies at Ewelme Watercress Centre today for the beginners lino cutting class. The theme was Plants and Pods and some lovely work was produced encompassing realistic forms through to abstract, almost Cubist, work.
Planning your work is essential so that you know which areas are to be cut away, and everyone took care with this so that no mistakes were made. A practise session with the cutting tools is vital in order to “get to know them” and see what they can do.
You can see from the photos above some of the work in progress. And below the finished images. Well done ladies!!
If anyone is interested in having small group tuition ( it is a great party idea too) please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
