To become a member of Art Crew is perfect for someone who wants to explore many different aspects of art! You get to receive a great selection of art materials each month, whilst engaging with a community of like-minded people with whom you can share your growing armoury of new-found skills 🙂
In this month’s Art Crate, you’ll find a selection of printmaking materials – a handle with carving tools, sheets of grey lino and soft rubber easy-cut, good quality printmaking paper, water-based printing ink, and a printing roller. Using these materials, I’m going to guide you through the process of creating your own linocut print. My tip would be to impose no limits on yourself and never be afraid to try something new!
My personal goals are to continue to evolve my Printmaking practice – try out new styles of working and incorporate new elements into my prints, in terms of subject matter. I’m also aiming to increase the scale of my work (I really fancy going large this year!!). As far as I’m concerned, we never stop learning, and my biggest fear would be to become smug and self-satisfied in what I’m doing with my art.

Happy creating, everybody!
