About the Course
Develop a linocut image, either A6 or A5 in scale.
Study professional linocuts by Annette Rolston and Mike Fenton, also examples of other students prints and printmaking reference books.
Try out professional cutting tools, experiment with mark-making. Use traditional grey lino and a new softer vinyl.
Carve the image then print in black and white on paper through a printing press as well as learning hand printing techniques. Subsequently, print over a monoprinted background, then try over printing in colour. Print several prints in the session, fabric offcuts available as well as a selection of papers. Explore some colour inking, masking and layering techniques if time allows.
There is usually 4 to 6 in the group, professional and friendly tuition.
Bring any images that you would like to work with, a packed lunch, an apron and a folder to take home prints.
