This four-part LivePlus™ online linoprinting course is designed for absolute beginners and those with a little knowledge of the subject

Workshop details
In this series Karen will show you that linoprinting is a great technique to do at home…easy to learn, using minimal equipment with a whole host of variations available once you’ve got the basics.

Forget the blunt tools and tough lino of school days and enjoy the process with soft-cut lino and a whole range of approaches. Perfect for printing cards, wall art, fabric etc. whether you’re a complete beginner or looking to expand your skills.

Session 1:  We’ll start off with the absolute basics covering tools, materials, elements of design (templates will be available if you want to use my designs), different cutting techniques and inking & printing in black & white.

Session 2:  This is all about exploring colour – we will be using blends & rainbow rolls, spot colour, masks, a nifty cutting and sticking technique, & collage as well as making a basic registration device.

Session 3:  Jigsaw prints, Stamps & Composite images…designing plates to be cut up, inked and reassembled in both a structured and informal way to create multicoloured images with minimum effort!

Session 4:  We will look at working in layers…designing for a two or three layer linoprint;  layering using polystyrene as a printing plate,  freeform layering & creating interesting backgrounds using the back of the plate for simple monoprinting.

Specific skills you will learn at the workshop:

  • Creating designs suitable for linoprinting
  • A range of cutting techniques
  • Materials & tools for getting the best results when handprinting
  • A variety of inking & printing techniques
  • Playing with colour, layering & combining with other printing plates
