Lettering in Lino – with Polly Marix Evans (aka Bun-Head)
Spend a day with Polly devising your own meaningful, printed 'piece' from a word, name or letter, to make someone smile! Draw it out, transfer to Lino under Polly's careful guidance and create your own original Lino Cut Print into which you can incorporate Polly's wonderful figures and/ or symbols if you wish.
You’ll be working predominantly in black and white, but with the option to add splashes of colour, to produce a bold and striking print, or prints - and you can work on a lino block of either A6 or A5, or cut these to any size, or shape, you choose. There'll also be an option to display your lino cut print in a mount to pop into a 10x12" frame, if that's the size you prefer. Generally working larger is easier; but of course, Polly will advise.
You could bring a silhouette of a beloved pet, somthing else iconic and relevant to you, a hobby or sport, a friend's name, or maybe even a food? Anything goes really - come with any ideas you have and Polly will advise how best to create your own piece of original, quirky printwork.
For those who lack confidence to draw your own images, Polly will have sample blocks of borders, words, letters and Bun-Head figures which you can use. There will also be materials available to trace fonts or images.

About the Artist Polly Marix Evans is a linocut printmaker whose work features a small and feisty character known as Bun-Head.

Viewers can draw from my prints what they need, they speak to everyone on an individual level.’
