Pattern, Print, Repeat- A Lino day workshop
Tutor Syrah Jay
25th June 2022
Course fee- £55 including all materials
So, what is Lino printing?
Lino Printing also known as lino cutting, is a printmaking technique, It’s an effective method for creating multiple prints of an artistic style using linoleum.
Wood is the more traditional block printing surface but lino gained popularity in the early 20th century as a cheaper alternative and has become not only a common surface for professional printmakers, but a great introduction to printmaking for kids.
The recesses carved out leaves the design in relief and it is the raised design that the ink is applied to and then transferred to the paper when pressure is applied by hand or printing press.
For this workshop there will be a textile twist, instead of creating paper prints as an outcome you will be printing onto fabric tote bags & cushion cover creating your very own repeat patterns.
All materials will be provided all you need is some inspiration.

I have always been interested in creative arts & crafts since a young age so it was inevitable that I would have a career in making. After graduating from DJCAD in printed textiles. I devoted my time to expanding my skills & experience by volunteering with creative organisations within Perth, Dundee & Angus.
In 2007 I opened Syrah Jay, to create and sell my own textile jewellery, since then I have developed my designs into more alternative materials such as cork, wood, concrete & jesmonite.I love to create something unique and wearable out of unusual materials. I also enjoy creating bespoke items of jewellery for my clients working one to one is an amazing collaborative experience.
In addition to my making, I also teach a range of creative skill workshops. Working with others is an amazing experience I have met so many interesting and creative people, that have greatly influenced my creative works.
