What's on


Tuesday 13th June 2023
10am – 2pm

Lino etching is a relief printing process that uses caustic soda paste to etch into lino blocks. This technique can be a good addition to traditional cut lino. You will experiment with mark-making through the use of simple ‘resists’, a way of protecting areas of your block against the caustic. This can produce a wide range of tonal marks. Once your blocks are etched, you will be guided through inking and printing, with the opportunity to explore colour inking and multi-layered prints, producing 2-3 prints each on good quality paper to take home. 

Our taster sessions offer a brief introduction to some of the key printmaking techniques practiced here at WYPW, and a glimpse into the processes involved in creating hand-made prints. You will be guided and encouraged by experienced artists who use printmaking in their own art practice, in a professionally equipped workshop setting.
