Our linocut printmaking workshops based in Copenhagen will provide all the tricks to get you started on your introduction to basic print techniques . Printmaking is a fun way to create images that can be used as poster art, t-shirt & fabric designs, propaganda prints, or limited edition fine art prints. It's great for handmade gifts or extravagant hate messages. I will guide you through all the steps to make some rather impressive prints. Within the day we should have drawn out, carved and inked up your linoleum which will be transferred to paper. Materials will be provided for. Three to five prints at the end of the day without chopping up your fingers is the aim, and a rather realistic one. We do use cutting tools, but with a bit of common sense, it's easy to avoid self mutilation. Guests will get to take the carved block home so you can make as many prints as they like with very few tools required. Christmas and birthday presents are sorted for everyone.
Under the name of Henry the Rabbit there have been a whole bunch of exhibitions and workshops in and around Copenhagen. The Rabbit name corresponds to a music project that goes under the same name. My actual name is Craig which is less exotic, but you can choose which name to use. Free spirited, and attempting always and forever to live the dream. I very much look forward to meeting and introducing you to a wonderful and somewhat addictive pastime.

The workshops will take place in suitable spaces. Blaa Galleri in the heart of Nørrebro (North district) is an option when groups are bigger than 4. For smaller groups we will either take it to PETROL's (excellent cafe) side room or Gallery and artist space Kunst-i-Haender in the district of Vesterbro. All are fantastic spaces with access to washrooms, and both connected to places for food and beverages, smokes, beers or your poison of choice.
最多可有8位年满12周岁的参与者参加。家长也可携带2岁以下的儿童参加。 Families are welcome to bring children, but the workshop uses sharp tools and a keen eye on young ones would be needed.
Guests should also be prepared that the prints will need to dry overnight. Post can be arranged if returning to pick them up is not possible. Lacking inspiration? Check Pinterest: Linocut Inspiration & Ideas for Workshops. Think monochrome, 2D, strong graphics, go easy on complicated details :)
