Course Details
Learn how to create, carve and print your own single colour linocut block during this taster session.

 

What will you learn?

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. The design is then cut into the linoleum surface with a selection of specialist tools, with the raised (or uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed.

The linoleum sheet is then inked with a roller (called a brayer) and impressed onto paper or fabric. The actual printing can be done by hand or with a press.

Students will learn how to create a single colour linocut, which can be printed using our presses or by hand. Please note our concessionary and student discounts do not apply for taster sessions.

Suitable for ages 13+.

* Children younger than 18 may be accompanied by a parent (at no extra cost). Please note these classes are not suitable for children younger than 13 years old due to the printmaking machinery/tools involved.

If you are booking for a young printmaker and would like to accompany them during the session, please note your name in the Order Notes when checking out.
