Develop a linocut image, either A5 or larger in scale. This is an ideal day workshop and the fee covers two people booking together. 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. No previous experience needed. Professional and friendly tuition. If you have any images that you would like to work with please bring them along on paper, otherwise there will be images to choose from.
