The LINO PRINTING WORKSHOP is a 4 week class where you’ll learn various image transfer and cutting techniques, multiple ways a linocut can be printed, with or without a press.
Linocut prints have long held their own position as a versatile and interesting print medium. And who said linocuts had to be black and white? You will also learn a variety of techniques transforming the basic black and white linocut into a multi-coloured print.
Linocuts are a fantastic medium to work with if you do not have a printing press but still like the possibility of making multiple images that have no size restriction. This workshop gives you the opportunity to extend your knowledge of lino cutting and the versatility of colour prints.
