Get started with making your own linocut pictures and patterns in a relaxed, easy to follow step by step process, one-to-one online personal workshop (not pre-recorded video).
Learn to make your lino cuts and then print them to make pictures and handmade cards. You can also print onto fabric to make your own designs, onto t-shirts for your own unique style, or bags for your own fun shoppers. This is a great place to start learning the craft of lino cutting and printing.
I will contact you within 24 hours hours of your purchase of this online workshop to arrange your individual session for a mutually convenient date and time (7 day a week availability 9am-9pm). If you have any questions before or after purchase please let me know - happy to help!
During this 1.5 hour workshop, you will see how to make a sample lino cut and how to make a print from your finished linocut. We will be concentrating on starting with the process of lino cutting and printing, including:
What equipment and supplies do you need
What makes a good linocut design
Adding your design or picture to your lino (plus how to avoid confusion as the design prints as a mirror image of your linocut!)
How to cut lino with cutting tools
Mark and pattern making - beyond the basic cut
Taking test prints and perfecting your design
Printing one-colour designs
Ways to use multiple colours for prints
Health and Safety - how to cut safely
Suppliers of lino making equipment and consumables (UK)
I will demonstrate how to make a small linocut and how to take a print from it onto different types of paper and card. I will show you other examples of lino cuts and their resulting prints too.
If you have the supplies and equipment already, you can 'craft-along' with me during the demonstration and you will have access to the video replay after our one to one.
If you want to see what you need first before purchasing your lino cutting equipment, you will also have access to the video replay after our one to one.
You will be invited to an online group just for Workshop attendees where you can continue to ask questions about making linocuts and printing them. You can ask any questions which you may have after the workshop and I can help you with any issues which you may be having. And where you can share your lovely handmade linocuts and prints too!
