    Event description

    In this workshop you will explore a form of relief printing carving a design onto a piece of printmaking lino to create your own black and white print.

    What will you create?

    You will create unique prints that you can keep as printed or use them to hand colour the prints to have an edition of unique works of art.

    What is relief printing?

    Relief printing is a form of printmaking where the print plate is created by carving away areas of the lino to leave the line to be printed raised up from the base of the plate.  The plate is inked up using a brayer. A registration system is used to ensure that the paper is lined up correctly when printing. The ink is transferred to the paper from the plate by putting it through the printing press or manually using a baren or other device. Unlike monoprints, you can make multiple prints from the one plate creating an edition of prints.

    You can frame your prints as artworks for yourself or to give as gifts to others. They can also be made into one-of-a-kind cards to send to the special people in your life. No prior experience is required to enjoy this fun workshop.  It would be good to bring some simple line drawings along to the workshop that you might like to transfer to lino. If you are concerned about your drawing skills at all, your instructor will provide you with some templates to use.

    All art materials are provided. Old clothes or an apron are recommended as we use water based ink in the printing process.
