Title

A Limited Edition and small batch kit to be creative at home.

We plan to produce 40 of this kit to celebrate the coronation of King Charles in the UK. At Clever Hands Studio, we love to get inventive and have fun thinking up new ideas! Here is a print kit for complete beginners with everything you need to learn the skill of linocut & print. Carve your own design into a lino sheet, then produce a bunting garland to hang inside or outdoors. Sketch out a design yourself or copy the templates which are the correct size to fit the lino sheets provided.

Make this as easy or hard as you like, a great activity for family fun or a celebration with friends. Schools recommend age 11 upwards supervised due to cutting tools being used. No previous experience necessary. This kit also makes a great gift. As standard, the kit arrives with you in a sturdy kraft card box with fun packaging, see the photos for details of the original 1960's newspaper and hand printed crown vintage postcard we have put together.

For a full regal gift wrap option, please tick that box at checkout and we'll wrap it up fully as a gift and hand write any messages you provide.

Full written instructions are provided in the box, but we also made some short videos as we tested out our kit! Check out the tutorials to see these for free.

- A6 size lino sheet in soft cut quality. Great for beginners! we include 2 of these so you can test out your tool before you make a design. otherwise you can do 2 different lino sheet designs.

- Bunting flags - 12 of these in A5 size, red, blue and white, we especially crimp a vintage pattern along the bottom edges and thread holes at the top, ready for you to print and hang.
- Jute garden twine, 15 metres plenty to hang your bunting

Please note that inks are for use with papers. These will work on fabrics but any rain or washing would make the ink run out. The lino sheets when carved can be used on fabric with specific fabric printing inks. Please check out my shop to add a fabric ink pot into your basket & we will include into your kit box. Old tea towels and bedsheets for printing you can find easily at home.
