Lino cutting and printing is a very enjoyable process that can be explored at our kitchen tables and requires a minimum of specialist equipment. Many of us may remember creating our first linocut during our Art lessons at secondary school. If you are looking to learn a new creative skill, but need a process that can be “picked up and put down” and fitted around a busy life, this may well be the technique you have been looking for.
Working from your chosen images, this one day workshop will introduce you to one colour lino cutting and printing. This is the perfect introduction to this addictive print process, with a particular focus on how you may continue developing your skills in your own home.
However, if you have previous experience of lino cutting, but would benefit from a few prompts and reminders, it’s likely that you would be able to progress quicker and develop a two colour lino print.
We will cover developing ideas into designs, safe cutting techniques, alongside hand printing. Single colour prints can also be developed by printing onto coloured backgrounds and exploring collage techniques.
Join Liz Wellby in the beautiful thatched barn at Meon Springs on Thursday 13th October.
