Linoprinting

This one-day, onsite workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those wishing to refresh.

Learn all the basics of this simple printing process and produce a series of prints in this structured but relaxed workshop. We will look at creating a design from your source material, safe lino-cutting techniques, and printing by hand using a variety of approaches. No experience needed.

Working from your own designs or those provided by the tutor we will look at how to adapt images to make them suitable for linocutting. After familiarising yourself with the tools and their mark-making possibilities you will create a plate using soft-cut lino (which is much easier on your hands) ready for printing. Using water-based printing inks you can experiment and explore the possibilities of making a whole series of different but related prints from a single plate.

This is a lovely technique that can be easily done at home with a minimum of specialist equipment…..great for making cards, wall art and even fabric printing (fabric won’t be supplied in this workshop but you can bring your own if you want to experiment).

There will be lots of step-by-step demos and individual help in this fun & lively workshop.
