Learn the basics of linocut printmaking and come away with a small edition of prints carved by your very own hands! This course will show you how to transfer your image/design onto a lino block, cut the design into the block using specialist cutting tools, and how to ink up and print your block using our large Imperial platen press.
This course is suitable for beginners or those wanting a refresher.
