About the Course
In this workshop, you will learn the basics of cutting lino and explore how to use the reduction technique to print a two-colour design. We begin by getting to grips with the basics of lino printing by experimenting with mark making and simple reduction prints and then use these techniques to develop a two-colour design on an A5 or A6 soft-cut lino plate. Soft cut lino is very easy to carve your design and will allow you to make an expressive print. We will print the plates using our relief printing press.
The choice of subject it yours - Trevor will bring along masses of images of wildlife and farm animals so you can decide what inspires you the most.
The workshop is suitable for beginners to printmaking and lino cutting, or those with a little knowledge who would like to increase their knowledge. Those with more experience will be able to cut a more complex design, while beginners will work on something more simple. We cover all the basics and so no prior experience in lino is necessary.
