Introduction to Lino Printing

  • Museum of Futures 117 Brighton Road Surbiton, England, KT6 United Kingdom (map)

Join me at the Museum of Futures for an in-depth course on how to make lino prints!

This course spans over 6 hours and covers everything you need to know to become a fully fledged print maker. Throughout the day you will:

  • learn all about the different traditional lino tools and how to use them

  • how to prime your lino

  • participate in exercises to improve your understanding of mark making in relief printing

  • carve your own lino block

  • learn how to register blocks and print them precisely by hand

  • create a series of prints from the block you carved during the session

Due to the intensive nature of this course, there are only 6 places available. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided - there are shops near by where you can purchase lunch.

This course is suitable for all levels. If you have previous experience in lino printing don’t worry! Instead of spending time on the basics I can work with you to improve your mark-making, composition skills and printing/registering ability. Due to the sharp tools and length of this course, it is not suitable for children.

Tickets to this course cost £50 per person - as a thank you, all ticket purchasers will receive a hand-printed ticket in the post as well as a free print of ‘Toastie’ (pictured above).

This workshop is kindly sponsored by Great Art.
