The course is aimed at those who have an interest in printmaking; however it is also suitable for people who are new to art. In this one day workshop you will learn how to plan and cut designs for linocut printing. Areas covered will include use of tools, colour mixing, registration techniques and printing using a baren and an etching press.
As participants will be working from their own ideas, it is important to bring some drawings, photographs or other images as source material from which to work. All other materials will be provided.
