So it all started about 3 years ago when I moved back to England. I needed a change of pace, I was hankering after something new, I had a little time on my hands and so I decided to give Lino cutting a whirl. I had tried it some 20 years ago as a child and couldn’t even remember what it was all called, but the lady in the art shop understood my vague description and set me up with an entire tool kit and my first piece of lino. Off I went with this little day dream about selling cards on a market stall if my lino cuts were good enough. I began my first cut and was instantly hooked – but lino wasn’t the only thing I cut! Ouch!!!
It took about a week for my hand to heal and it was the longest week, because all I wanted to do was get back to carving the lino! I’ve never cut myself again since, it was a lesson learned instantly.
The art shop was soon…
