About the Course
Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of Lino is used for the relief surface. A design is cut into the Lino surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed.
On this one day workshop you will learn how to use the tools, equipment and materials to get started in linocut. You will be guided through the process in a step by step way. You will produce an edition of A4 prints to take home with you.
Suitable for adults who are complete beginners. If you have images you would like to take inspiration from feel free to bring them along, although examples of different linocuts and still life samples will be available on the day. Bring some lunch along with you.
Jane West is a graphic designer and printmaker based in Lincolnshire. She uses relief and intaglio processes as well as traditional letterpress for printing.
A further 4 week course is planned for a more in depth look at printmaking techniques.
