27 Sep Linocut Printing with Shelley Dyer-Gibbins
Yesterday our event space made a successful debut as a public workshop space for creative pursuits. Award winning artist Shelley Dyer-Gibbins hosted a one day introduction to Linocut printing to a group of 4 wonderful participants. Ranging from complete beginners to people who had experimented with the technique before, the outcomes were all beautiful.
Shelley says “I’ve taught my craft for over 4 years now, but today was the first time I ran a workshop at ‘Heart of the Tribe’ and was so impressed with the workshop space. It has such a good vibe with the beautifully landscaped garden adjacent to it. It was great to see people attend after such a long time of being in lockdown but also being social with socially distancing. Linocut is a wonderful craft to have a go with, even if you’re artistic or not. There is no right or wrong. There are no boundaries. It’s all about mark making, having fun and Art being good for you’re soul.”
“So pleased to be part of the debut workshop at Heart of The Tribe! Excellent day with Shelley, great content and a lovely vibe, social distancing etc. all good, and the venue is superb. Highly recommended.” Lisa
“Absolutely Brilliant workshop, lots of fun. Enjoyed every moment. Great venue! Shelley is very motivational and gives lots of ideas, examples of lino cutting.” Grace
“Great workshop, totally enjoyed every minute & amazingly enough for someone who doesn’t have an artistic bone in her body come out with an amazing linoprint. I’m so chuffed!! Can highly recommend this workshop.” Nicola
Shelley will be hosting more Linocut printing workshops on the 14th November and the 5th of December. Spaces are limited so booking is essential. Contact Shelley via e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
