Lino Cutting and Printing Masterclass
ANN LEWIS RCA
SATURDAY JUNE 6th 2020
LINO CUTTING & PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP
£65 includes all materials
Suitable for absolute beginners or as a refresher course.
Whether you've never tried linocutting before or haven't done it since school days, this is a perfect beginner/refresher course to inspire you or address those memories of rock hard lino and not-so-sharp tools.
Ann will take you step by step from your initial sketch or photograph, using her own work to explain and demonstate at every stage. You'll learn how to 'reduce' your sketch or photograph to a simple, yet effective single colour image, how to transfer your drawing to lino before learning methods of safe use of the linocutting tools to create a single colour image ready for cutting.
The second part of the day will be spent cutting and proofing your image before printing a small limited edition of original prints from your lino block.
There will be an opportunity at the end of the day to experiment with adding colour to your black and white image using tissue paper and a process called 'chine colle'.
Please bring with you a simple image (sketch or photograph) to work from. We will be working at a maximum 10cm by x 10cm, therefore please ensure your image is this size or smaller (but not too small!).
