Course outline: Lino Printing with a twist of gelliprint.
This workshop is aimed at anyone who would like to explore lino printing techniques for the first time or extend previous knowledge into varied colour. We will be using the gardens as inspiration looking at the beautiful flowers and foliage to design simple motifs. These designs will then be hand carved into soft cut lino that carves much more easily than old fashioned lino and gives wonderfully clean prints. We will print a small edition onto varied papers and backgrounds. Printing onto fabric gives a fantastic starting point for extending into stitch too.
I will also be bringing gelli plates which can be used to create textured one off backgrounds. Printing your lino designs on top of these vibrant prints will give life and individuality to your work.
We can also explore three colour reduction lino printing techniques for those more confident. Most participants will produce variations of their design with layers of different colours.
All the skills that learn at this four hour workshop can be transferred straight home to your kitchen table!
Costs: £55 per workshop
All materials will be included in the price.
