Introduction to Printmaking with Nigel Grist

Tuesday 22  & Wednesday 23 October, 9.45 am - 4 pm

This course will provide an introduction to the art and basic processes of printmaking in general and more in-depth coverage of lino-cutting in particular. The course is suitable for complete beginners but all levels of experience are welcome.
Over the two days of the workshop he will cover:
  • Safety aspects
  • Image design (positive-negative, image reversal )
  • Cutting a plate (line types, patterns)
  • Inking the plate
  • Registration techniques
  • Printing methods (by hand and by press)
  • Introducing more colours (various techniques)
  • Other possibilities

  • In addition, other printmaking techniques (e.g. etching, collagraph, drypoint) will be illustrated. There will be time to design, cut and print several linocut images, some individually and others as a group.
    By the end of the course you should have a good understanding of the main processes of printmaking and be confident to produce a linocut print by hand or using a press.
    More detailed notes will be provided once a booking is confirmed.  
    All materials and papers included.  Some basic equipment for home printing will be available to purchase at cost.
