I'm Haychley and I'm a traditional linocut printmaker based in Norwich, Norfolk in the East of England. I design, carve and print original linocut designs, both open and limited edition, using a wooden spoon or small printing press. I run workshops around Norfolk, details for which can be found here on my website.
Growing up in the Worcestershire countryside, I moved to Norfolk in 2012. I began teaching myself printmaking in early 2018 and was hooked on this wonderful medium right from the start. My rural upbringing, combined with the close proximity of The Norfolk Broads and coast close to my home, has meant that the natural world is a great influence on my prints. I've had a fascination with folklore and history from a young age and I seek to incorporate this into all my linocut prints.
My philosophy around printmaking is to share and hopefully inspire. I run a Patreon printmaking community where I share tutorials and tips for linocut printmaking and I've hosted an interview series called Meet the Printmaker. I'm also the founder of Small Biz Mates that connects small businesses around Norwich to meet and get some fresh air and chat about the ups and downs of small biz life. I'm also one half of the creative craft market organisers The Lovely Handmade.
