Lino Printing Printmaking Workshop Course Content

  1. Introduction - A brief demonstration and explanation about the lino print workshop. I will assist everyone in preparing the two colour image for printing. This will be explained thoroughly.
  2. Decide on an image for printing. The print will include printing two colours, using two pieces of lino.
  3. Draw up an image on tracing paper separating the two images. The first lino will be printed onto the paper using black ink.
  4. The second piece of lino can then be cut to add further colour to the final print.
  5. Once both pieces of lino are ready to print the first colour can be printed, for example - green and then using the other piece of lino a darker colour can be used. Most of the time this is usually black.

Images will be approximately 4 inch squared. All lino plates will be cut to size ready for the workshop. Registration for printing will be explained during the workshop. All materials are included in the course, including ink and paper. Please bring found images or drawings to work from. I will give full assistance and guidance on preparing an image for lino printing. Sample images of lino prints by other artists will also be available.
