On my recent visit to Italy (where I was teaching a linocut and letterpress workshop) I visited the studio of Veronica Bassini in Bologna. Anonima Impressori is tucked away down a quiet street to the west of the city and is full of drawers of type and printing presses rescued from typography studios all over […]

Bick Fill talks about his series of Monster linocuts

Another great video of Bill Fick, this time talking about why he makes linocuts of monsters and people’s preconceptions about what kind of artist would make such images. There’s also some nice footage of him working in the studio. Bill Fick’s linocuts featured in a travelling exhibition I curated over the last year. Most recently […]

Print drying rack for my studio.

Last week I bought a print drying rack for my studio in Margate. As far as printmaking equipment goes, this is one of the most useful things you can get and I’m not sure how I’ve managed so long without one! When I was printing an edition before, my studio would quickly be covered with […]

Linocuts go global

I’ve had an overwhelming response from Saturday’s Guardian feature. I had around 2500 pageviews over the weekend – not bad for such a niche blog! I’ve also had lots of interest in workshops. Please do get in touch if you are interested in learning linocut or developing your skills. All workshops will take place in […]

Linocut workshops and other printmaking courses in Margate

I am planning to run a series of linocut workshops and other printmaking workshops like etching and possibly screenprinting over the next year here in Margate. One idea is to run two kinds of printmaking workshops – evening classes for local printmakers and weekend classes for artists from further afield, like London. At the moment […]

New Year, new linocut projects

As I begin my first calendar year in Margate I thought I’d write a quick post about my plans for world linocut domination in 2012. To set the scene here is a lovely shot from Margate beach of the Harbour Arm and Turner Contemporary. Having established that Margate is, indeed, a lovely and exciting place […]
