Lino Printing on Fabric
2020 dates now available.
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 onto a fabric bag. You’ll go home with your lovely linocut, some sample prints and a fabulous reusable shopping bag proudly displaying your artwork.

You don’t need to bring anything with you as all tools and materials/equipment will be provided. However, please do feel free to bring your own fabric scraps & photos or pictures to provide inspiration for your framed picture.
