About the Course
Spend a day learning to lino cut and make prints from your lino cut piece.
You will each be making a sample lino cut, then learn how to use a picture, photo or freehand drawing to make a design, how to transfer your design to the lino ready for cutting, and how to use lino cutting tools to prepare the lino to make a print. You will also learn how to make a print from your finished lino cut, perhaps to take home to frame or to put onto a card. You will be able to take your sample and your individual project home. As a group we may also be able to discuss how to use different colours for lino cuts (which we can then explore further in an intermediate workshop for more advance lino cutting designs and printing).
Maximum number on workshop is 8 people. This class is suitable for adults and accompanied teens.
Lino cut craft kit included: choice of designs, lino, printing inks in selection of colours, and papers.
You will learn how to make lino cuts and then how to print from them. Tools and printing equipment are available for use throughout the workshop.
Price includes all the materials and use of tools to make a small sample item plus one project piece approximately A6. All the other equipment will be supplied except an apron which you may like to bring. Please wear clothes suitable for crafting - lino cutting ink is quite sticky.
