About the Workshop

This workshop will give participants an introduction to traditional techniques, tools and materials used in the relief printing process of linocut, and shows how easy and fun it can be to make your own prints at home. Starting with a small piece of lino we will first draw straight onto it, before learning how to use different cutting tools to carve out our simple designs. With the carved block (sort of like a rubber stamp) we will then roll ink over the surface and transfer that to paper to create unique lino prints to take home. All materials are provided.

About Jamie Temple

Jamie’s practice is rooted in printmaking, branching into sculpture and installations that draw from a lifelong fascination with the built and natural environments we inhabit. Multiple themes recur throughout his artworks including landscapes and the horizon; views and vanishing points; architectural structures and home.

Much of Jamie’s ideas are informed by his surroundings and context at any given moment: cities such as London and Glasgow, between which He splits his time working; journeys by bus or train up and down the UK; or visiting remote parts of Scotland to explore and make. Jamie has always found himself most at home in the landscape and his experiences from growing up in rural Scotland continue to inform his work through choices in subject, materials and approach.
