Multi-Block Linocut

Weekend Course


Learn how to create, carve and print a multi-colour linocut from 2 blocks during this two-day course.

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. 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.


Topics covered:

  • A brief history of linocut and its terminology
  • Paper types, tools and materials in relief printing
  • How to produce your own prints using the methods covered
  • How to sign and edition your prints
