On this 2 hr course our lovely tutor Fiona will teach you the art of lino cutting and printing.
Fiona will start the session by looking at plenty of samples of images printed using lino cutting techniques. She will talk about the tools involved and you will get to handle and use each tool to create a small practise piece.
Fiona will go on to help you plan a design and then how to transfer it to the lino. You will be able to use the tools used on your sample to create a linocut.
Lastly, Fiona will show you a couple of methods of burnishing and printing your 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.
Mono printing is a form of printing that only produces one original image, unlike other printing forms where you can get multiple prints from one original.
There are many techniques for Monoprinting that create beautiful results. Working with thick printing inks and a lovely selection of handmade papers, you will produce a number of original prints to take home with you.
Our wonderful tutor Fiona will be on hand to gently guide you in this craft. All materials are included plus beverages and light snacks.
