Making Linocuts in Bali

I’ve just got back from visiting my sister Debbie in Pemberton, she and her husband Pete run Pemberton Lake View Chalets, a beautiful place which as the name suggests overlooks a lake, there is something about water to calm the mind and nourish the soul. The property is also surrounded by beautiful forest.

While I was there with my family,  I met one of the participants of my linocut workshop in Ubud. Sue Nigg from Hidden River winery, she and her husband Ardel run a gorgeous winery and restaurant in Pemberton with outstanding wines and food. Sue will be one of the 12 participants at the Ubud Linocut workshop which is fully booked and starts on the 7th of January 2018.

So now I’m cutting up Lino and packing together all the materials for our Bali workshop, I’ve also made a booklet which goes step by step through linocut, to be part of the materials kit, which all the participants receive included in the trip. I have actually improved the materials kit slightly since I made this video before the last workshop.

Please like or comment on the video, as you can see it packs away neatly into a beautiful traditional Balinese hand-woven case. It was important to me to support this incredible local craft. Besides the practicality of keeping everything together its a beautiful handmade object and  a lovely memento of the trip. Previous students have commented to me that they are still using the materials and love that they are ready to go any time with everything organised together.  I’m delighted to be sharing linocut on this fantastic trip – not long to go!

Now I have to get back to cutting up lino.
