Karené

Hi! I'm Karené and I will be your host for your printmaking workshops. I am an artist and a photographer, a printmaker and a pattern addict! I create my own motifs with linocuts, and also have a growing collection of hand carved wooden blocks from India that I enjoy using.  The process of block printing is calming and meditative, and at the same time there's something really satisfying and exciting about gradually seeing a pattern grow on your fabric. Combining your own choice of colours and pattern motifs means the options for creativity are endless. 

 

There's something joyful, meaningful and magical about physically using your hands to create and I want to share this joy.

Qualifications: I have a Fine Art degree in History of Art and Studio Practice; I recently completed a PGCert in Applied Art and Social Practice; I have studied an introductory course (40 credits) in Art Psychotherapy at Glasgow University. After many years of working as a photographer my love for printmaking was reignited out of a deep need to make with my hands again. That need lead me to a course in Oxford and I am now also a certified block printing tutor.

Indian block printing

Get a taste of the ancient art of Indian block printing using similar wooden blocks. Use these beautifully hand-carved blocks to create your own pattern and colour combinations on textile or paper items.

Linocut block printing

If you're dying to do more - let's look at how pattern works. How are repeat motifs structured? Have a try at designing your own motif, carefully carve it into lino and then print your own pattern.

The video below shows the process of block printing, with my own lino-cut motif.
