Create Original Linocut Prints Workshop

Copenhagen, Denmark

Experience hosted by Craig Martin

  1. 2.5 hours
  2. Hosted in English, Danish, and Spanish

What you'll do

Based in Copenhagen Make Your Own Linocut Print Workshop will provide all the tricks to get you started on your introduction to basic print techniques . Printmaking is a fun way to create images that can be used as poster art, t-shirt & fabric designs, propaganda prints, or limited edition fine art prints. It's great for handmade gifts or extravagant hate messages. Great for singles, couples, groups, travelers and locals. (Write to me for larger groups).

I will guide you through all the steps to make some rather impressive prints. Within the day we should have drawn out, carved and inked up your linoleum which will be transferred to paper.

All materials are provided.
3 or 4 prints at the end of the day without chopping up your fingers is the aim, and a rather realistic one. We do use cutting tools, but with a bit of common sense, it's easy to avoid self mutilation. Guests will get to take the carved block home so you can make as many prints as they like with very few tools required. Christmas and birthday presents are sorted for everyone.

Guests should be prepared that the prints might need to dry overnight. We can dry them with a hairdryer to avoid expensive postage costs if you are unable to return.

Masks and hand sanitiser is available, and we will keep guests at a safe distance. We will just use our common sense and make sure you still get a great experience.

Under the name of Henry the Rabbit there have been a whole bunch of exhibitions and workshops in and around Copenhagen. The Rabbit name corresponds to a music project that goes under the same name.

My actual name is Craig which is less exotic, but you can choose which name to use. Free spirited, and attempting always and forever to live the dream of the artist life.

I'm British but have spent time living in Barcelona and Copenhagen. Japan is my favourite travel destination.

I can tell you much more about printmaking when we meet.

I very much look forward to meeting and introducing you to a wonderful and somewhat addictive pastime.

Where you'll be

The workshops will take place either at Blaa Galleri in the heart of Nørrebro (North district) or PETROL's (excellent cafe) side room in Vesterbro. Both are fantastic spaces with access to washrooms, and both connected to places for food and beverages, smokes, beers or your poison of choice. If these places are having events, we can take it to my place next to Hvidovre Station (a short train ride from the centre).

Rated 4.97 out of 5 from 115 reviews.

Highly recommend regardless of your artistic ability! Craig is very encouraging, a great teacher and easy to talk to. This experience was a great final impression of my short trip to Copenhagen, and I made some fun prints I got to take home with me at the end of the class!

We very much enjoyed the workshop and had a really nice conversation with Craig about art, traveling and life in Denmark! The carving was easier than we thought and my partner was so amazed by the technique he wants to create more art :D Even though we took longer than anticipated, Craig was not rushing us, which was really nice. Very much recommended! The area is also really interesting and I recommend ending a nice artsy afternoon with a hot ramen at the close-by restaurant Ramen to biru!

If your in Copenhagen and have some free time I would definitely recommend doing this. Craig is very friendly and skilled in what he does + it's a very personal and original souvenir to take home with you (:

Craig is a great teacher - very thoughtful & supportive, plus he explains well when you have questions. The whole session was set up really well. Plus he gave us lots of extra time for the printing. A great experience!
