Learn the basics of Linocut and how to design, carve, register and print an edition of 2-colour lino prints.

During this one day course you will be guided through the basics of Linocut, an enjoyable process that makes a perfect introduction to printmaking. You will learn how to transfer an image onto your lino, carve your lino blocks and create a small edition of 2-colour prints. You will also gain insight on the materials and tools used, and how you can continue the process as home.

On this course for beginners you will be guided through every step of the process from start to finish, leaving with confidence in linocut printing and having created a finished edition of prints to take home with you.
