As part of the Brixton Design Trail week, Bugle illustrated Kaylene Alder is running a lino cutting workshop. Kaylene is also a printmaker and teacher.

If you love a bold print then this is the workshop for you! Learn how to draw, cut and print your own A5 lino-printed design in a single colour. Kaylene says: “You will print several of your design – in different colours and on different papers. You will be able to take your printing block away to continue your printing adventure at home.”

The workshop will include a demonstration of creating a second colour block if you decide to extend your print in the future.

“The inspiration for the workshop ties in with the ‘Love is Power’ theme of this year’s Brixton Design Trail and a fondness for plants but all ideas / inspirations are welcome.”

The workshop is for ages 18 and older. All materials will be provided.
