Suitable for absolute beginners to printmaking, lino is a great place to start! It’s also a medium suitable for exploration if you’re not a total beginner, so don’t be shy to sign up and join in the fun. You can refresh your skills and extend them, trying out several different techniques.
Tutor Angela Lalonde will guide you through the process of relief printmaking over a series of 10 classes, that will cover everything from where to look for inspiration, how to prepare your block, to using the CAN etching press to print your limited edition!
Learn how to select, design and prepare a suitable image, transfer it to lino and carve your image into the block using lino cutting tools. We will initially be printing a small edition on paper, as we do it learning how to ink your block, register your paper using a template, and work a press.
Use of the CAN tools and press, inks and your first A5 lino block are included. You will need to bring paper suitable for printing on, which will be discussed at the first class.
As full instruction of every class starts promptly at 10.30am, please arrive to each class with a few minutes to spare. We will be working with A5 (148mm x 210mm) lino blocks, so if you want to prepare some images beforehand, use this size as a guideline. Preparation beforehand is not essential however.
