The regular Macmillan ‘Craft & Chat’ group had a go at printmaking yesterday, when Manchester artist and printmaker Carolyn Murphy introduced them to linocutting. The group meets every Monday morning from 10-12 and they love to get stuck into new craft projects. In just 2 hours, the crafters created some lovely work and enjoyed learning and chatting over a cup of tea.
The workshop took place in the new extension to the Macmillan Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital, in the room where Carolyn’s ‘Serenity’ linocut commission hangs.
You can see below some of the photos from the session, as well as the Macmillan commissioned work on display, and the greetings cards, now on sale online at Love From The Artist. All profits from greetings cards and digital reproductions of ‘Serenity’ go directly to the Macmillan Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital.
