Multi-colour lino print workshops - Summer 2023

Thursday 1 June 2023 How to make a two-colour multi-block linocut print

Back for the 5th linocut workshop! A wonderfully creative and fun day with Jane, Sue, Steve and Helen, building on techniques learnt in the previous multi-block workshop. One of the things I love about teaching is seeing how skills develop.

If you want to learn how to make multi-colour prints using the multi-block method, my multi-block online course can be started anytime.

What did you enjoy the most about the day?

“The company, the chat and learning in a relaxed atmosphere.”

“Expert help, explanation and patience of Michelle, ability and time to explore ideas.”

“Collaboration, explorative and troubleshooting. Refining mark-making and testing new background designs.”

“The company! The outcome. Lovely clear explanations and lots of patience!”

Monday 5 June 2023 - Mixed-level lino print workshop

This has been my first mixed-level lino print workshop. Hannah created a robin lino print based on a photo from her garden and Fiona, a stone circles landscape, to practice her mark-making techniques. Bernadette and Pam used the jigsaw lino print technique to create 2 colour prints of a wren and Clive the clown.

What did you enjoy the most about the day?

"Learning how to make a lino print! And seeing other people make a jigsaw lino print. I’ve enjoyed having a small group and one-to-one help."

"Trying new techniques and types of pictures. Opportunity to practice, ask questions and discuss. Nice surroundings and weather!"

"A relaxed atmosphere, good fun and learning new techniques. Picking up lots of tips and tricks to use again at home."

"Learning how to do a jigsaw linocut."
