INTRODUCTION TO LINO CUT & PRINTING

Join Bethany Moore in our half day workshop to learn the traditional art of lino cut relief printing

Lino printing is a form of relief printing, which means that areas are carved away from the surface using a tool and the ink is rolled on to the raised area that remains. Paper or fabric is applied then pressed, or burnished, and the raised area of your design creates the print. It derives from woodblock printing which was used in the Far East for the practical application of textile printing and for printing artwork onto paper. Today the skills of block printing are still in use. Open to all levels, age 16+.

What you will do

Your 3 hour workshop begins with an introduction to lino cut block printing, the tools you will use and format of the workshop. This will be followed by a demonstration of the whole process. Watching how your block will be carved, marked, inked and printed will give you a good idea of what you will be doing.

You will then create your design guided by Bethany. Feel free to bring along your own sketches or images to inspire you, or let our teacher guide you with some easy patterns. You will then print your work onto paper or fabric. You will have the option of creating a selection of greetings cards to take home with you.

Our workshop is suitable for complete beginners.
Age 16+ due to the nature of sharp tools being used.
