Christmas is coming, and so too is a delightfully festive workshop to get you in the mood for the season of cheer. Right in time for gifting season, we are delighted to present Printing & Pints: a Christmas card lino printing workshop.

Tickets include: 

  • 2.5 hours of expert tutoring
  • All equipment, materials and inks
  • Up to 10 hand-printed cards and envelopes to take home
  • 15% discount on drinks, all night long

During this beginner-friendly workshop, local print legends Sonja and Luke of Blue Roll Press will be on hand to share their expertise. Over the course of two and a half hours, you'll be walked through all the steps needed to choose a festive design, before carving and inking your own lino block. You'll then get to grips with two different printing techniques: one using a traditional printing press, the other the intriguingly named 'spoon method'. You'll then print up to ten Christmas cards and envelopes to take home and share with your loved ones. 

If you've already got an idea of what design you'd like to make, then do feel free to bring along any printouts you'd like to replicate. Alternatively, Luke and Sonja will bring a variety of seasonal designs and inspiration on the nigh. At the end of the night, you will take away your own hand-carved lino block (in case you'd like to make more prints at home), and all finished Christmas cards and envelopes you printed. You'll also be armed with an exciting new skill to continue exploring at home! 

Please note that this lino printing is a hands-on, inky sort of activity; please wear clothes that you don't mind getting messy. 

Your ticket also includes a 15% discount on all drinks at the bar, during the event and for the rest of the evening. 

Our taproom is fully wheelchair accessible, with a dropped bar area, level floors throughout, and an accessible bathroom. If you have any questions around accessibility, please do get in touch. 

Tickets & Refunds

We have worked hard to make this event as inclusive as possible, therefore three different ticket prices are available. The standard recommended ticket price for the evening is £30, however, if this feels inaccessible to you financially (no questions asked), please choose the £25 or £20 ticket options. There is also an option for a £40 ticket if you'd like to spend a little more. Whichever ticket you book, all money goes directly to local artists Sonja and Luke. 

Tickets are limited, so don't delay booking. Refunds can only be given 14 days or more ahead of the event. You won't receive a physical ticket for this event and you don't need to print or bring anything; on the night we will print a digital guest list and sign you in. 

Closer to the event, Luke & Sonja from Blue Roll Press may be in touch via email (using the email address under which you booked your ticket) with additional information about the event. Please keep an eye out, and don't worry: you won't be added to any additional mailing lists.
