Description

A poster taken from a five colour lino and letterpress print, showing the beautiful lavender farm in Ickleford, near Hitchin, England, this is a unique piece of artwork, whether you love the style of these traditional yet modern prints or have special memories of the area.

This print shows the fields in bloom, with the sunflowers in the next field. Lavender was grown in Hitchin as early as the 1500's, and this beautiful farm is now open to the public, who can walk among the 25 miles of lavender rows, picking their own to enjoy at home.

Reviving the traditional techniques of linocutting, I wanted to celebrate my favourite parts of the town I was brought up in by making a series of beautiful prints. The original prints were made from drawings which I transferred to lino, and made using the reduction technique in three or four colours. Finished with lettering hand printed using vintage letterpress type, the original prints were limited to a run of 20. I hope they will resonate with others who love the town too, as well as those who appreciate the unique nature of a linocut print.

The print sold in this listing is a high quality digital reproduction of the original artwork on 300gsm card, made as an A3 or A4 poster (choose your preferred size when ordering). It will be sent with a cardboard backing in a cellophane sleeve.

After seeing Kim's exhibition in Hitchin I knew I had to have one of her prints! She was so kind to send me an original after a mixup with my order, and I am so chuffed with it! Both of her prints are absolutely gorgeous and I'm so exstatic to show them off in my home! Thank you again Kim!

I did this class today and it was A M A Z I N G!!! I honestly cannot recommend it highly enough. Such a peaceful way to spend a morning, to learn a new skill and to be surrounded by beautiful lavender fields. I’ve dabbled with lino printing before but within the first five minutes of this class I worked out where I’d been going wrong all these years.
