One Day Linocut Workshop 

10am Meet and Greet. Stanpit Village Hall 

 

Morning session:

 

  • During the first part of the morning we will guide you in choosing and drawing a simple design for your finished print. We will bring lots of inspiration examples and ideas for you to work from or copy. You are also very welcome to bring your own ideas or sketches/photographs to work from. We can show you ways of simplifying these for your final design

  • We will then show you how to transfer that design onto your lino block using tracing paper. 

  • You will then spend the remainder of the morning cutting the block. Full instructions will be given including a demonstration on how to hold and use the tools safely.. 

 

30 minute lunch break approx 12.30 - 1pm. 

 

Afternoon session. 

 

  • After a short demonstration you will ink up your block and ‘pull’ your first print. Then you will repeat the process until you have a number of prints (usually between 8-12) to take home with you. 

  • We will be using small portable presses to print with but will also show you how to create prints without a press. 

  • At the end of the day we will look at what everyone has produced.
