WORKSHOP: Reduction Lino Printing - Tuesday 26th September 2017
with Alexandra Buckle
Tuesday 26th September 2017
10am - 4pm
£5 materials fee payable to the tutor on the day
A one day workshop is a great way to explore the exciting process of reduction linocut – a multi-colour relief printing technique which involves cutting and printing layers of colour from the same block of lino in order to build up an image.
Alexandra will help you plan a design, transfer it on to lino and then show you how to cut, ink up and print it – burnishing the prints by hand. All in an easy way to then replicate the process at home with minimal equipment.
You will also learn how to correctly register your prints so that each layer of colour lies accurately on top of the previous layer.
At the end of the day you will leave with your own design as a 2-3 colour print ready to frame and hopefully a lifelong fascination for linocut printing!
