It is also possible to arrange a lino print workshop at MSP on a 1-1 basis at a time to suit you.
You would learn the basics:
- how to make your artwork suitable for lino, looking at examples of artwork by other artists,
- how to transfer your design onto the block
- how to use the cutting tools safely to achieve different types of marks.
Firstly you would try carving a sample block, looking at mark making, creating positive and negative elements.
When your block is ready we can go through the different printing options and you will print your artwork using a couple of different methods.
Once you have completed your initial sample block print you will go on to produce a new larger composition employing all your new skills and knowledge which will be printed as a small edition towards the end of the session.
Equipment and materials will be provided for a small edition. Additional materials – lino / paper are available for purchase from MSP. You will need to bring a sketch book or some visuals that inspire you to help create your design.
We can arrange learn lino 1-1 as a series of 2 hour sessions, giving you time to work on your printing blocks in between classes or as a single day session.
3 x 2 hour sessions. £120
1 X 6 hour session. – £120
