An introduction to lino printing, you will become familiar with the tools and materials needed to create your own lino prints. We will begin with basic cutting techniques to give you a better understanding of the process, before moving onto an image or design to carve into the lino. Once the lino is inked up you can create multiple prints from the same carved lino.
This process is extremely versatile not only for the reproduction aspects but the surface in which you print onto is not limited to paper. You will also have the opportunity to experiment with different colours and papers to evolve your prints further. Students are advised to bring at least one design or image to work from.
The tutor is Kiera Arnold.
