Your tutor: Rachel Richardson
Come and get your hands inky and your creativity flowing in this taster session workshop which will introduce you to the technique of lino print.
Lino is a traditional relief technique where the surface of a linoleum block is carved away to create marks or an image. Over the course of this taster workshop you will learn how to use lino tools to draw into the surface of your softcut lino plate before inking and printing your plate on one of our presses.
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.
