If you have never done any printmaking, this is a great starting point.
We will be using modern, easy to cut lino and throughout the course of the day you will make a number of small blocks, building on your knowledge as you progress.
What you will need:
All tools and materials will be provided.
Residential option available. Find out our accommodation, costs and how to book here.
You will learn how to adapt your ideas to make successful prints, which tools to use and how paper can affect the final results. We will be printing by hand and with a press. We will be printing primarily in one colour, but you will learn how to add coloured backgounds to your work.
At the end of the day, you will have learnt enough to continue printing successfully at home, and what tools, equipment and paper you will need to do this. You will have printed your images on to paper and cards and you will have a number of blocks to continue printing with. You will have a good understanding of the process and how to build on the skills you have gained.
