Looking to decorate your home and learn a craft? Create your own unique handmade prints!


Be inspired by Peranakan design and make your own heritage-rich linocut prints! Suitable for beginners through to seasoned crafters, this class will teach you the traditional technique of carving and printing in soft linoleum to create a handmade set of prints for your own home or as gifts.

Choose your favourite Peranakan floor tile from a selected range and experiment with different colours and pattern combinations. Learn the basics of linocut transfer, carving and printing in this hands-on workshop. All materials and tools will be provided including linoleum blocks, cutters, inks, transfer papers and printing papers.

At the end of the class you will be able to take home a set of prints to display and you even get to keep your hand-carved block for future projects - cards, gift wrap or even wallpaper! See photos from recent workshops!

What do we do in this workshop?

1. Choose from a selection of 'tried-and-tested' designs! It's not easy - they are all so nice!

2. Transfer your design onto tracing paper using a pencil.

3. Have a little practice and get carving! Remember...mountains and valleys! Don't worry - we do lots of practicing.

4. Your carved block will end up looking something like this...everyone's carving reflects their personality!

5. And that's the carving bit done - very satisfying! Next...printing to create your single and multiple designs!
