What you will learn A two-session course which will take you through all you need to know about creating and printing a beautiful single-colour linocut. Linocut is a great way of creating striking designs with strong graphic qualities. It is a great way to start learning about printmaking as once you have cut your block, it is easy to print. Experience level No previous experience is needed for this course. Beginners are welcome, along with those who need a refresher. Course programme Session one: effective linocut design, linocut tools, markmaking and carving your linocut. Session two: registration and preparing your paper, printing and editioning. A range of teas, coffee and biscuits will be provided. What is included All basic materials such as paper, tools and equipment are provided. Additional linocut blocks and printmaking papers will be available to buy during the course if you would like to try something a bit different or take some materials home to try. Preparing for the course If you can bring a design, it would maximise your time cutting and printing. You'll be working on a piece of A6 lino (105 x 148 mm), quite small, so don't make your design too complicated. It will need to be reversed (mirror image). Think about areas of solid black or white and the balance between them. Delicate black lines are more difficult to carve. White lines on black are the easiest to carve.
