Over three nights we will teach you how to design, draw, cut, print and edition your reduction lino.
The first night is all about shape and design - this is where the fun starts! Settle in with a glass of wine and some cheese as we go through the design process and draw from an elaborate still life. Absolutely no pressure or prior knowledge of printmaking necessary! At the end of this class each student will have a design drawn and transferred to their lino tile.
The second night is focussed around printing and colour! In this class you'll be cutting your tile and starting to build layers of colour on your print. We will teach you about registration and how to edition your print.
The third night will be spent adding your final 2 layers of colour to your design and framing your work ready to be hung on the wall at home!
** Please note this class is for beginner level and no prior knowledge is needed. All printing is hand printed using a bamboo printing tool. Framing is charged at an extra cost, please see framed option when booking.
