Printing pretty pineapples

One of the first designers to feature on Dine With Design was the gorgeous, Kate Guy, artist and founder of Cardabelle Design. Today, Kate invited me to experience one of her printmaking workshops and I had the best time! Check out my pretty printed pineapples!

I’ve always wanted to do an artist workshop before but it’s one of those things that has continuously been put on the back burner. But when I received Kate’s email about how for 2 weeks only, she’ll be sharing her expertise and helping you create your own lino cut and print, I couldn’t resist! In a super-fun, interactive 3 hour workshop, you get access to all of Kate’s knowledge about printing, as well as her equipment to create your very design! The workshop is hosted in a very homely, bright and well-located space in Queens Park. Here’s a bit from Kate about the workshop and pics from today!

“At the session you will learn the principles of relief printing and the basics of linocut printing. You will produce your own small lino block (approx 10 x 10 cm) and up to three good prints.

It would be good if you can think of what you think you would like to create before you come – this is not essential as I will provide resources and imagery to work from, but your outcome will be more personal if you bring you own ideas.

A key approach to creating a linocut is to try to think in blocks of colour rather than a line drawing, you can see two examples below of the type of image that works well – keep it simple!”
