A practical and fun approach to Lino Printing; this course is suitable for beginners.
Discover how to transfer your images or drawings into a beautiful finished artwork. In this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of lino printing, from drawing and carving your image, to the inking and printing process without a press. Learn about artists that have used lino printing such as Margaret Preston, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. Explore different printing techniques including black and white prints and multilayered prints all of which can be practised at home.
Bring some drawings, photos or photocopied images with you. The more contrast of dark and light the better. (We will have a still life set up if you don’t have an image.)

- Pencils etc. for sketching your image (what ever you have at home) and a small blank note book. I will supply some paper and pencils.
