Linocut Workshop at the Robert Smyth Academy.

Today I've been running a Lino cutting workshop at the Robert Smyth Academy in Market Harborough. I managed to grab some photos of some of the work before the students ran off at the end of the day. The year 10 students brought in photos relating to their current course work, we then spent the morning thinking about how they might interpret these images first as drawings and then in anticipation of making them into prints. I'm so impressed with the results, and considering some of the pupils hadn't done linocuts before and to produce work of this quality in one day is amazing. I hope they take what they've learnt today and carry on developing it.
