An introduction to lino printing

£45 all materials supplied

This is an ideal workshop for those wanting to learn how to create their own unique linoprints. In this workshop you will use simple techniques that can be replicated at home without the use of a printing press. 

Using traditional lino cutting techinques you will learn how to create and print from your own block of linoleum.  The textures and effects of print making give endless possibilities to the sorts of images that can be created. There will be an emphasis on being creative and having fun in a relaxed atmosphere and along the way you will gain invaluable tips from Sue who is a printmaking artist and painter.

You will leave the workshop with lino printed cards, gift tags and your own original print which is perfect for framing. You will also take your lino plate home so you can continue to print with it.

 All materials are included.

Although not necessary you may wish to give some thought to a possible design prior to the workshop. It is a good idea to bring an A6 sized drawing, photo or other image for inspiration and to work with. 

Simple, large block designs and silhouette shapes work best for this type of printmaking. However, lots of examples and ideas are available at the workshop.

The workshop is open to 10 years and over if accompanied by a participating adult.

This workshop is run by local artist Sue Collins.
