Join local Somerset artist Jackie Curtis in making your very own linocut Christmas cards!

About

Under Jackie’s expert tuition you’ll learn all the techniques required to carve your own Christmas design into a single coloured Lino block and the basics of linocut printing. Once you’ve completed your Christmas masterpiece you can take home the results.

Jackie Curtis is an artist and printmaker inspired by the natural world. She can often be found walking on the Somerset Levels observing the landscape and birds, sketch book and camera in hand; looking for materials and ideas to use in her printmaking. 

Jackie works from her Somerset studio using relief techniques. Her monoprints are spontaneous, lively innovative prints often created as an immediate response to recent experiences. The collagraphs, produced from a collage of materials, are rich in texture and depth of tone. Linocuts are more intricate and stylised with strong elements of pattern, whilst her woodblocks are influenced by natural grain, shape and flaws in the wood. Recent work includes en plein air printmaking creating blocks outside from foraged materials and using a portable press on location.
