Rowan Tree

5 December 2012

Rowan Tree Cards are the creations of London based printmaker Rowanne Anderson.  She makes hand printed, linocut, greeting cards using recycled materials. The cards on sale at Curious Makers pop-up shop will be from the 'Shakespeare Quotes' range which are currently being sold at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. There are 8 different designs on sale, one of which is a Christmas card including added festive glitter!

Linocut is a printing technique which involves using a v-shaped chisel or gouge to cut a design into a linoleum block. The image must be made in reverse (a mirror image to the finished design). Ink is rolled onto the raised areas which remain uncarved and then it is impressed onto paper. The actual printing can be done using a printing press or by hand.

Find out more about Rowanne by visiting her website here.   Buy and write your Christmas cards at the Curious Makers shop this Sunday 9th December! We'll even post them for you!
