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:
Image design (positive-negative, image reversal )
Cutting a plate (line types, patterns)
Inking the plate
Printing methods (by hand and by press)
Introducing more colours (various techniques)
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.
