Custom-designed printmaking kits for the whole family to learn linocut using age-old traditional methods while having lots of fun, and bonding over a craft activity.
We love the tradition of sitting around the kitchen table, working on craft projects and making a mess with the family. Times when everyone's absorbed in their own creativity, when we can tell stories and make memories. So we thought we'd make some crafty kits that make it really easy to gather everyone around!
We design our linocut kits with lots of love, thought and care. Each kit is put together by hand, and include original design illustrations, inspired by my own love of nature, wildlife and architecture. I draw upon my own extensive experience of printmaking and include many tips and shortcuts that will mean that you will soon be ready to tackle bigger projects.
Our kits make the perfect creative gift and are designed with the beginner in mind. No previous experience or skills are required and you’ll learn all the techniques you need as you go.These can, however, be as readily be enjoyed by those who have some prior experience with printmaking.
The sharp carving tools mean the kits are suitable for children ages 10+ and we always recommend adult supervision when using these tools.
It should take a beginner one afternoon (appx. 3-4 hours) to create the designs in our kits, with suitable cocoa and cake breaks. In fact, you can complete stage 1 and 2 in one sitting, and then come back to the final two stages another afternoon.
Our kits include everything that you possibly need for printmaking. Besides an original design, we provide you with tools that you can use again and again!
