Wednesday 31st July to Saturday 3rd August

This will be a lively, friendly introduction to lino cutting but also 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. The 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!
There will be a materials cost of £17 per student.
Lino Cutting ANNA PYE grew up on a farm surrounded by wildlife and the countryside which has inspired her artwork. She started printmaking in 2011 following her retirement from teaching. She holds lino cutting workshops at her studio and other venues. Anna's prints are in these books: The Artful Hare, The Elegant Fowl, The Cambridge Art Book and Limited Edition.
