On this 2 hr course our lovely tutor Fiona will teach you the art of lino cutting and printing in layers.
Fiona will start the session by looking at plenty of samples of images printed using lino cutting techniques.
Fiona will go on to help you plan a design and then how to transfer it to the lino. With this method you cut and print your single piece of lino at least three times to create a multi layered piece of work.
Lastly, Fiona will show you a couple of methods of burnishing and printing your final linocut. You’ll go home with your lovely linocut, some sample prints. There is no excuse for not displaying your fab piece of art at home straight away!
This course is suitable for complete beginners to lino cutting or those wishing to brush up their skills. As lino cutting involves using sharp gauging tools we recommended attendees are 12 and over (under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult).
This is a 2 hr course and will include hot and cold beverages and lots of lovely biscuits. Please arrive 10 minutes early to allow time to get a brew and get settled, you don’t need to bring anything other than your lovely self. Directions and further information (if needed) will be emailed directly to you two weeks before the course date.
