Event description

Description

Linocut is a traditional relief printing technique where a print is taken from the surface of a lino block. On this workshop you will learn how to use the tools, equipment and materials to get started in linocut. You’ll carve your own lino, use oil based inks and use our Albion relief printing press to make an edition of unique Christmas cards to send to friends and family. You’ll be guided through the process in a step by step way in our professional print studio.

Who is the workshop for?

This course is suitable for adults who are complete beginners or those who wish to refresh their previous skills. Those with an understanding of the process can use the day to develop their skills and gain tutor advice and guidance.

Do I need to bring anything?

Basic materials needed for the day will be provided. This will include lino, a range of ink colours and cards to print on. If you have an image, drawing or book which you’d like to take inspiration from feel free to bring it along.
Refreshments will be provided.

Your Tutor

Rachel aka Bobshaped is a printmaker based in West Yorkshire. She studied engineering before achieving a degree in metalwork and jewellery. After using tools for many years ‘drawing’ with lino cutters was a natural progression into print. This lead to an interest in other types of print, she is currently enjoying screen printing and letterpress. She has taught various print techniques to both adults and children through different organisations including Wakefield art club and Wakefield Cathedral. Pattern, repeats, layers, colours, nature, technology, craft, packaging, architecture and process are some of the things that inform her work. Sometimes there is a bit of humour thrown in for good measure. You can contact her at rachel@bobshaped.com see examples of her work at www.bobshaped.com and follow her on twitter or Instagram as @bobshaped
