Introduction to linocut printing workshop
Learn how to design, carve and print your own unique linocut print.
What you will learn
Understand vocabulary and techniques of printmaking.
Develop a clear understanding of the steps needed to plan and create a successful print.
Hand burnish a simple limited edition one colour print using softcut lino and oil based inks.
Take home a print that you can frame.
During the morning you learn about materials and tools, cut and print a test print and then plan your
final design. In the afternoon you cut and print your chosen design.
Workshops will be held in my light and hopefully sunny garden studio in Holgate, York.
