Why not discover the art of lino cutting and create your very own design.
In this 3 hour session you will learn all of the basics of printmaking, an ideal showcase of the skills required for those who are newcomers to the technique.
You will be able to design then create a single cut lino print, which will be printed with a colour blend and hand printed.
At the end of the session you will find yourself with beautiful finished prints that are ready to be given as gifts to friends and families or even sent out as greeting cards.
We do ask that prior to this course you think about the type of image that you would see as your end vision. After all, the less time spent on the concept is more time spent on the printing itself.
Skills and techniques covered include-
- Design – drawing onto your block of lino. Thinking creatively to get the most from your lino cut.
- Cutting – cutting safely, cutting creatively, mark making.
- Printing – inking the block, using colours and rollers, hand burnishing.
- General tips about lino printing, examples, what can be achieved with lino.
It is requested that you bring with you coloured pencils and an apron and we advise all attendees to wear old clothes.
When it comes to your design, photos and sketches that you have made will be great for inspiration, however if you have none a bucket of enthusiasm will be enough!
