About the Course
In this practical and fun approach to Lino Printing, you will learn the fundamentals of lino prints, from drawing and carving your image, to the inking and printing process. This will include a variety of techniques and methods including transfer of your design, safe carving techniques, types of tools and the variety of papers, the printing process and an introduction to hand burnishing. The course is suitable for beginners to intermediates. Creating linocuts and prints need not be an expensive pastime with lots of kit required, so Hugh will show you the best options for becoming a home-based printmaker.
