Week one

The first session will take you through all the starting points for lino cutting and printing. Choosing and adapting an image, transferring an image to the lino block, using the cutting tools and how to ink up your lino block to create a single colour embossed image.

This will include inking techniques to create multi coloured prints using one block, layering colours using more than one lino block, creating tonal effects through cutting techniques and developing your printing skills including preparing your paper and ways to register prints to produce a good quality print.

- An edition / small number of prints you have printed and the block you can continue to work on and print from.

Participant Feedback

"Northern Print is a lovely place to come into - it feels immediately welcoming and full of potential. Helen was an excellent facilitator, the course was extremely well organised and it was great having all materials provided. I learnt a lot - quite a lot about choosing a different image next time!"
