'Selfie' Linocut Workshop - Saturday 11th September 2021

ANN LEWIS PRCA

'SELFIE' LINOCUT WORKSHOP - SATURDAY 11th SEPTEMBER 2021

 Full day workshop - £70 includes use of all materials

 

Suitable for absolute beginners or those with intermediate experience.

 

In a selfie-filled world, we borrow the concept to create a single colour linocut self-portrait, or portrait of a family member or friend.

 

This is a perfect beginner or intermediate course to inspire you or to address memories of rock-hard lino and not-so-sharp tools at school.

 

Ann will take you step by step from your initial sketch or photograph, using her own work to explain and demonstrate at every stage. You'll learn how to 'reduce' your sketch or photograph into a simple, yet effective single colour image. Then, how to transfer your drawing to lino before learning methods of safe use of the linocutting tools.

 

The second part of the day will be spent cutting the block, then proofing your image before printing a small number of original prints from your block.

 

If time allows, there will be an opportunity towards the end of the day to experiment with adding colour(s) to your single colour image using tissue paper and a process called 'chine colle'.

 

Please bring with you a 'selfie' (tonal sketch or black & white photograph, not a line drawing) to work from. We will be working at a maximum 10cm by x 10cm, therefore please ensure your image is this size or slightly smaller (but not too small).
