About the event
Linocut is a relief printmaking process. Material is carved away from a block to leave an image, which is then inked with a brayer and burnished by hand. Due to the nature of hand printing, each print in an edition is slightly different.
The 3 hour linocut workshop will include:
-Artist demonstrations of each step in the printmaking process
-Guidance and help creating your own lino block
-Proofing and refining your block (test printing)
-Printing a final edition of 5 prints on to card stock or printmaking paper using professional quality relief printing inks.
Your lino block and all your own prints will be yours to keep after the workshop. Materials to create one lino block and print an edition of 5 prints are included in the price of your workshop. If you would like to make additional prints or lino designs (time permitting) you can buy more materials during your workshop.
There are just 4 spaces in each workshop. Advance booking is essential.
Please note, linocut involves carving by hand and although you do not need perfect coordination, some strength and dexterity is essential (e.g. able to peel potatoes, use a craft knife etc). If you are unsure if this workshop is suitable for you please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss.
