Wednesday 29th July to Saturday 1st August
This is 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.
Next you can design and cut blocks for a
2 or 3 colour print and 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'll produce a variety of prints
to take home and gain the knowledge
and confidence to carry on at home.
Warning - lino cutting is quite addictive!
There will be a materials cost of £17 per student.
