What you will do
3 hour workshop
Introduction to lino cut: Students are often surprised at how quickly their skills develop. At the end of the session you will know and be able:
- to use the carving tools and the basic cutting techniques.
- to experiment with a practice block and mark making.
- to transform your imagined idea into a creative piece of art, postcard or visual story.
- how to ink your lino block
- how to use the printing press.
Composing your design: You may wish to bring some of your own images to work from, however plenty of inspiration is available to assist your decision-making process of creating your own work.
Take-Home: Everyone will take home a set of lino printed cards and envelopes, their original carving and mark making block, notes which cover all the techniques used on the day.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
