Lino Printing Printmaking Workshop Course Content

  1. Introduction - A brief demonstration and explanation about the Screen printing workshop and process.
  2. Decide on an image for printing. The print will include printing two colours. The image will be separated in the two different stencils. A scalpel blade will be used for this process on a cutting matt.
  3. A3 paper will be provide for this process.
  4. Each image can be tested on paper first before the final print is created.
  5. Each person will be able up to 3 - 5 bags each.

Images will be approximately A3 in size or smaller, due to the size of tote bags. All materials are included in the course, including ink, paper and tote bags. 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 Screen prints by other artists will also be available to look at for reference.
