An Introduction to Linocut with David Crosby – Weekend 31 October/1 November
October 31 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM GMT£160
There’s so much more to linocut printmaking than meets the eye but, if you are a novice, this is where you start and this weekend course will teach you all the basic techniques.
David will show you how to prepare the lino before you start, how to create, cut and print a design on one piece of lino and finally how to print a two-coloured image using two lino blocks.
You will learn about the tools used, mark-making techniques, the best papers for printing, how to use a printing press and be given guidance on inking up your lino blocks to achieve a perfect linocut print.
This course is aimed at beginners but refreshers are welcome.
All materials are provided, including a boxed set of Japanese Linocut Tools, with extra paper available to purchase from the studio shop if required.
Places are limited to 5 to allow for social distancing. You will be asked to bring a mask and your own refreshments.
Date: Weekend 31 October / 1 November
Times: 10am to 4pm
