Linocut Printmaking Workshop

Examples of linocut prints by Kerrie Everett Horrocks.

In connection to this year’s Eco Fiesta on 4 - 5 June, Umbrella invites you to participate in a linocut printmaking workshop with local artist Kerrie Everett Horrocks, which will be focused on pollinators and their importance within our community. Attendees will be guided through the printmaking process, carving their images of bees and flowers into a lino block before printing them on postcards made from recycled paper. All materials and tools will be provided. 

Kerrie Everett Horrocks is a North Queensland artist, visual arts teacher and scuba diving instructor with a passion for educational initiatives for our community, especially with a focus on the environment and sustainability.  

This workshop is suitable for beginners, and preparations are not necessary; however, participants can bring sketches, drawings or imagery of bees and flowers. The workshop will take place in Umbrella’s downstairs studio at 408 Flinders Street (next to Mary Who? Bookshop and opposite Woolworths). Attendees should wear closed-in shoes. 

Limited to 12 spaces | Bookings possible for a maximum of two people at a time | Minimum age is 15 years | Visitors must comply with Umbrella’s COVID-19 Safety Plan and directives. 

This workshop is supported by Townsville City Council (TCC).
