Description

Linocut prints have long held their own position as a versatile and interesting print medium.  Participants in this 4 week workshop will learn various image transfer techniques, cutting techniques as well as the multiple ways a linocut can be printed, with or without a press.

Who said linocuts had to be black and white?  Participants will also learn a variety of techniques, which will transform the basic black and white linocut into a multi-coloured print.  This is a fantastic workshop to extend your knowledge of lino cutting and the versatility of colour prints.  This is a fantastic print medium if you do not have a printing press but still like the possibility of making multiple images that have no size restriction!!  This workshop is suitable for beginners right through to experienced.

17 October 2018 • Lino Printing

I just completed the open studio linocut workshop, supported by Marieke Dench. It was a constructive and helpful environment, with a lot of practical and professional advice as needed. Marieke is a great teacher with a wealth of experience to impart. The Art Room is an amazing space to work with other artists in friendly and creative atmosphere.
