“Love makes clear the eyes that else would never see: “Love makes blind the eyes to all but me and thee.” William Morris

Join artist Elizabeth Fraser from ‘Frauhaus’ Letterpress for this love inspired print workshop.

You will learn how to make a mini zig-zag book and how to use vintage woodtype on a table top printing press to create your own messages of love.

From this workshop you will take away two Shakespearean Flattery mini zig-zag books plus your own handprinted love inspired words/phrases ready to assemble. You will also take home a collaborative print on the theme of the day.

You may wish to bring along a favourite line of poetry to use!

About the Artist: Elizabeth is an artist printmaker, graphic designer and teacher.

Elizabeth’s work is underpinned by her love of language, text and pattern. She currently works mainly with handset metal type and lino to make create unique and limited-edition prints, books and cards.

She is fascinated by pattern, repeat and rhythm of lines, printers’ ornaments and letterforms. It is also the ephemera of life, that draws her interest, those objects, emotions and images that anchors us to a time and a place, celebrating and playing with seemingly insignificant cultural fragments.
