A poster taken from a six colour lino and letterpress print, showing one of the most summery of sights, a field of sunflowers which borders the lavender fields at Hitchin Lavender Farm, 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.

Hitchin Lavender Farm is a family run flower farm, an incredibly picturesque venue in which you can wander among the 25 miles of lavender row and pick your own fresh flowers. The sunflowers which grow later in the summer months are a real beauty, and I wanted to capture the golden glow which is set off beautifully by the lavender behind.

The print is part of a series of pieces of artwork based on scenes in and around Hitchin, in which I wanted to celebrate my favourite parts of the town I was brought up in. Reviving the traditional techniques of linocutting, 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 for the Sunflowers print were limited to a run of 20. I hope they will resonate with others who love the farm too, as well as those who appreciate the unique nature of a linocut print.

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

My friend and I had a fantastic morning on the workshop. We learnt new skills with guidance from Kim, and had so much fun making our own linocut prints. We would definitely like to do another workshop in the future.

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.
