Workshop.: Lino Printing with Amy Jade Prints

Online Event
Dates and times

16 Aug 2020

Online Event

Learn to lino cut at this online workshop.

Learn the basics of lino cut printing during this speedy introduction to one of the most accessible traditional print making techniques. 

All materials will be provided and the course is suitable for absolute beginners - no experience necessary! 

Lino cut print is a relief printing process in which a block is designed and carved to multiple editions or variations of an image. The resulting prints have a striking graphic quality whilst retaining the personality of a unique handmade object.

During the workshop Amy will share her process, tips and tricks to help you to create your own original art prints. You’ll learn about inks and paper whilst being shown how to safely carve a design using specialist cutting tools. She will also talk you through how to ink up the block and print your design by hand.

You will make at least one printing block designed for an A5 paper canvas that can be printed in a number of colours or used to create a number of identical prints.

This is an online workshop.
