Repeat Lino Printing with Lynne Sunday 22nd July

Sunday, 22 July 2018 - 10:30am to 4:30pm

Join artist & printmaker Lynne Blackburn of Essex Print Studio for a one day ‘Repeat Pattern Lino Printing’ workshop.

You will learn how to design a repeat pattern and transfer it to the lino block for cutting; how to use the tools and inks used in linocut printing, and how to hand carve a design and take prints from it. Linocuts can be printed easily by hand or with a simple press.

Lynne will bring a number of designs based around a theme of ‘Patterns’ for you to choose from but you are welcome to come along with your own ideas as well.

6 sheets of printmaking paper are included in the workshop price, with additional sheets available to buy if you would like to print more.

This is an ideal opportunity to learn the skills to create your own editioned prints, artist books, or posters.

While this workshop will focus on paper prints, the techniques are ideal for use with fabrics and textile art and there will be fabric available for you to try.
