Join Lynne for a Black & White Lino Printing workshop.

You will receive an introduction to the tools and inks used in linocut printing, will learn how to hand carve a design into the lino and take a print from it. Lynne will bring several designs, of differing skill levels, all based around an ‘Animals’ theme for you to choose from, or you can bring along your own design.

If you want to use your own design it will need to be simple and easy to hand carve into the lino; it should be A5 in size (14.8cm x 21cm) and printed out at the correct size onto paper in black and white. The examples shown will give you an idea of what to bring.

You will be given 6 sheets of printmaking paper to print on, together with fabric if you want to try it, and more will be available to purchase if you wish. Everything else you need, including inks, rollers and cutting tools, will be provided.

This is an ideal workshop to learn the skills to create your own editioned prints, artist books,or posters.

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those that have tried this technique before.
