Sophy Hollington is an artist and printmaker best known for her unapologetic style of linocut illustrations. Not being one to cut corners, most of Sophy’s commercial work takes the form of relief prints; created using through linocut. Sophy’s work has been featured in numerous publications including The New York Times, Computer Arts Magazine, The UK Crafts Council and It’s Nice That.

I enjoy sending up my fears, either dressing them up in garish colours or stripping them back to their elements when I’m working in lino.

Join Sophy for an introduction into linocut and the process of linocutting and printing. During this 4 hour workshop you’ll:

  • Design your own tarot card taking inspiration from the classic tarot deck.
  • Learn how to carve your design into lino using multiple carving tools.
  • Print a batch of your tarot designs.
  • Exchange tarot designs with the group to build a uniquely crafted deck.
  • Walk away with a unique set of 10 tarot cards, created and printed by the group.

You won’t need to bring anything but yourself to the workshop! All materials and tools for are included in the price of the ticket. If you would prefer to bring your own sketchbook and drawing materials for the preparatory drawings, you’re welcome to do so.
