Tutor: Scarlette Homeshaw

Join artist Scarlette Homeshaw for this three-day immersive course exploring the reduction method of lino printing.

Unlike traditional lino printing, reduction lino involves cutting away the surface of one lino block in stages and printing each stage, layer by layer, on top of the last, creating a multi-coloured, tonal print. Intricate detail can be achieved as well as bold abstract imagery, the result can be as stylised and individual as the maker chooses.

Over the three days you will develop a set of finished multi-layer lino prints as well as taking away with you the skills and knowledge to experiment with this highly adaptive technique. The course will cover each element of the process, from preparing your lino block, to carving, inking and printing, as well as registration methods and editioning your prints.

This course is suitable for beginners and well as those looking to learn a new printmaking technique or wanting a process refresher. Scarlette Homeshaw is a Huddersfield based printmaker who specialises in reduction lino printing and was the winner of our 2013 Flourish Printmaking Award.
