'Exploring linocutting and printing'
Anna Pye.

2018 Course listing coming soon.

Wednesday 26th to Saturday 29th July
This will be a lively, friendly introduction to lino cutting but suitable for those with some experience. You will learn about the papers, inks and tools used, design and cut a 15cm x 15cm lino block and print by hand in one colour, then explore printing that block using different colours of inks and papers. Next stage will be designing and cutting blocks for a 2 or 3 colour print and then maybe experiment with overprinting and the use of masks. I'll share lots of useful tips that I have picked up along the way and show examples of my own work. You will produce a variety of prints to take home and gain the knowledge and confidence to carry on at home. Warning - you may become addicted to printmaking!
Materials costs: 17 per student. Materials provided by the tutor will be given after booking.
