Reduction Lino Printing

Duration: Weekend course
Dates: Sat 29 Jun 10:30 - Sun 30 Jun 2024 17:30
Location: Print Studio

Explore a variety of methods to produce single and multiple colour prints.

This course will cover use of tools, equipment and techniques for both reduction and multi-block printing. You'll learn how to make a lino print, from how to transfer your design onto a lino block to printing your design using oil-based inks and a Victorian relief printing press. 

The course will also introduce a few ideas for achieving half-tones or texture and you'll leave with a small portfolio of prints.

Really enjoyed myself under the very patient tutor Liz – very thorough technical support.

Fantastic couple of days – I am a complete beginner but I felt I really achieved something!
