Lisa Takahashi - Linocut Workshop
Lisa is a very well respected artist whose recent exhibitions include the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The New English Art Club, the Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Society of Watercolourists’.
Lisa specialises in making linocut prints.
The technique involves carving a design into a tile of linoleum, ink is then rolled onto the uncut sections of lino on the tile, and then the inked up tile is put in a press with a piece of paper to make the printed image.
Artists have produced linocuts for just over a hundred years, and the medium is popular thanks to its bold, graphic, handmade aesthetic.
In this session participants will be able to select from a number of images available that have been designed in response to a Causley poem,
and transfer the image on to lino, prior to carving, inking and printing their very own postcard or greeting card.
After the session the lino tiles can be taken away and used to make more prints at home.
Suggested minimum age is 12 but younger children can take part using soft materials, advance notification necessary.
No experience required.
This event will now run from 2.00pm until 5.00pm - not 4pm as in brochure

Charles Causley Festival
The historic town of Launceston welcomes you to the Charles Causley Festival.
Almost certainly Launceston’s most famous son, Charles Causley is recognised as one of the greatest poets the nation ever had.
Join us in early June to celebrate the very best in the fields of literature and the performing arts.
