About the Course
A day learning the techniques to create your own lino print. Lino printing consists of carving into flexible linoleum which is then inked up and printed to create your image. Fantastic results can be achieved and once you learn the basics there will be no stopping you.
Learn how to design, cut and print your own, original block. You will have the opportunity to print on paper, cards, canvas bag and more. No experience necessary as you will be guided through the process at your own pace. This is a great starting point if you are thinking of getting in to printmaking.
