  • Learn all about he different traditional lino tools and how to use them
  • Learn how to prime your lino
  • Participate in exercises to improve your understanding of mark making in relief printing
  • Carve your own lino block
  • Learn how to register blocks and print them precisely by hand

Due to the intensive nature of this workshop, there are only 6 places available. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided - there are shops near by where you can purchase lunch.

This workshop is suitable for all levels. If you have previous experience in lino printing don’t worry! Instead of spending time on the basics I can work with you to improve your mark-making, composition skills and printing/registering ability. Due to the sharp tools and length of this workshop, it is not suitable for children.

Did you know?

For centuries, wood was the material of choice for making relief prints but the experimental, Austrian educationalist called Franz Cizek changed all this. In the late 19th century he began using newly invented linoleum for his art classes as it was softer and easier to cut - his influential art-y friends caught wind of this and suddenly the trend exploded all over Europe.
