This three week course is only suitable for those with previous linocut experience and focuses on reduction plates with an emphasis on the use of colour.
Diana Croft is a painter/printmaker and member of Greenwich Printmakers, London. She specialises in linocuts and collagraphs inspired by nature and the landscape. Born in Whitstable, Diana completed a degree in Illustration at Brighton University, before moving to London to work as an assistant to the well-known printmaker Brenda Hartill. Here, she developed her knowledge of experimental collagraph techniques and spent time perfecting the editioning skills required for printing large, highly textured etchings and collagraphs.
Diana’s prints are often stylised representations of landscapes particularly the South Downs and have a strong sense of pattern and design. She recently took part in a major celebratory exhibition of the Greenwich Printmakers’ work at Watts Gallery, Compton and sells her work through several galleries.
