Learn the basics for lino printing. From cutting your own block to understanding each of the tools and printing your own run of prints. This is a beginner’s workshop for people looking to learn a new skill or refresh themselves on this traditional process. We will guide your though printing your own single colour A6 print so you leave with the skills needed to continue practicing and a lino block to keep printing.
Prepare and cut your own A6 lino block to produce a series of prints with this beginner’s workshop for anyone looking to learn a new skill or refresh themselves on this traditional process.
We will begin with a demonstration on how each of the tools for lino work. Then help you prepare an A6 block and guide you through printing your own edition of up to 10 prints. Our tutors will explain the do’s and don’ts for cutting a block and how to achieve the best design for your idea. After this we will take a quick break before moving onto printing a consistent design with an explanation of the inks and press.
You will leave the course after exploring the process start to finish. We will also provide you with a booklet to refresh your mind on the process afterwards.
We will supply paper, drawing materials and examples to show you what can be achieved. You can bring your own drawing materials if you feel more comfortable. Please bring visual references for the image you aim to design, this doesn’t have to be perfect, just something to help get you started and explain your idea for more support. We will provide plenty of books for reference if you are unsure.
Lino is a relaxing and therapeutic process, without the need for digital interference. We aim to provide a relaxing, fun and engaging workshop where you can explore your visual language, pick up a new hobby or simply learn a new skill.
