About this Event

2 WEEK EVENING COURSE

TUESDAYS 4th & 11th FEBRUARY

6:00pm - 9:00pm

On this course learn how to create a multi-colour lino print. You will develop an edition of lino prints with 2-3 layers of colour. Your tutor will guide you step by step through the process and you will use oil based inks and our Albion press in the workshop.

What experience do I need?

This is a mixed ability course for beginners and those with more experience. Those who have an understanding of the technique can use the course to develop their skills further to produce multi layer prints. This is a great follow on course for those who have previously attended one of our day workshops in lino printing.

Lino printing lends itself to patterns as well as representational imagery, so don’t be put off if you don’t feel confident with drawing.

What will I make?

You will make an edition of 10-20 A5 lino reduction prints on A4 paper using different coloured oil based inks.

Who is my tutor?

Susie Rumsby is a Printmaking Instructor at Leeds College of Art, where she introduces students to screen print, etching, linocut, monoprint and bookbinding. Before coming to teach art in Leeds, Susie studied printmaking in Portland, Oregon, where she also worked as a master printer’s apprentice, an artists’ assistant, and at Portland Art Museum helping to put on shows of prints and drawings. Susie is a founding committee member of Leeds Print Workshop, and believes in making the fun of printmaking open to as many people as possible.

Do I need to bring anything?

We will provide basic materials including two pieces of A5 soft cut lino, cartridge papers and a variety of colours of oil based inks. The workshop also sells a range of different printmaking papers if you wish to try something different. Prices range from £1 to £2.20 per sheet.

If you have some imagery to use as inspiration feel free to bring this along with you, or you can use the examples, books and magazines in the workshop to develop your ideas.

If I can't attend can I get a refund?

We will issue a refund if you cancel no less than 14 days before the start of the course, after which no refunds will be issued. Please note Eventbrite’s booking fee is non-refundable.

By making a booking you are agreeing to our full course terms and conditions which can be found on our website here.

What if the course is cancelled?

We reserve the right to cancel the course for any reason (for example, insufficient bookings). We will endeavour to give at least 7 days notice if the course is cancelled and in the event of cancellation we will, of course, issue you a full refund.

Accessibility

Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible but, due to the nature of the building, Leeds Print Workshop is not wheelchair accessible. There is a step up into the building and four steps down to the toilets, and no accessible toilet facilities. Should you have any questions, or wish to discuss accessibility before booking, please don't hesitate to email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org

Please note: we regret that, for safety reasons, only those over the age of 16 will be permitted to undertake the course.
