December linocut workshops and exhibitions in Margate and London

I have lots of linocut workshops, exhibitions and other events coming up in Margate and London in the next few weeks. This weekend I’m running linocut printing workshops at Turner Contemporary and Fort’s Cafe. Then next week it’s the East London Printmakers open studio in Hackney followed by my pop-up Anti-Christmas Shop and Satan’s Grotto at Parade in Margate.
