Description

Workshop Detail

Explore the exciting process of linocut printmaking on this one day introductory workshop.
Linocut is a relief printing technique where areas of a lino block are cut away and the remaining surface is inked up to take a print from.
Local printmaker Kirstie Williams will guide you through the process where you will cut your own design to print an edition of A4 size prints to take home with you. There is also the option to make smaller designs for A6 greeting cards if you wish.
You will learn how to use the specialist cutting tools and equipment, oil based inks and a nipping press to create your prints. Calder Graphics sell a range of lino tools and equipment should you wish to buy some to continue practising your skills at home.
All equipment and materials are provided although if you have any specialist papers you wish to print on feel free to bring them along.
The workshop is for beginners or those wishing to refresh their previous knowledge and gain advice from a tutor.
