Relief Printing for Young Printmakers

Summer School
Sun 18 August 2019 (11am – 3pm)


Learn how to create, carve and print your own multi-colour linocut block during this Summer School for Young Printmakers session.


What will you learn?

Experiment with relief printing in this course designed for young printmakers between 13-21 years old.

Create your own prints from your original designs in a supportive environment. Learn about and experiment with mixing your own colours. Print onto different paper types and produce a number of prints towards your portfolio.

Linocut is a relief printing technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum (sometimes mounted on a wooden block) is used as the relief surface. Lino is a beautifully malleable printing surface. It is a very graphic method of producing an image. Designs can be cut, melted, or carved to create a bold and experimental design.

During this course you will learn how to plan your design, cut your block and produce an edition of prints using handmade papers.

Book both this course and our Screen Printing for Young Printmakers course together as a weekend course to receive a discount.
