About the event

A fun hands-on workshop where you will learn how to design, cut a block and print. With Claire.

This session is for pairs of kids (age 10+) and adults, with both participating, so the adult and child each need a ticket.

All materials and hot drinks or squash included.

This is a 'pay what you can' event. For those who can pay, the suggested amount is £16 per place. If affordability is an issue, you can pay up to 50% off this amount.

Linoprinting is a method of relief printing (like woodcut, wood engraving, letterpress, rubber stamping and potato printing). The surface of a lino block is carved using a range of different shaped cutting tools (gouges) to make different marks for the design; small v-shaped gouges for fine lines, u-shaped gouges for larger areas but lots of other marks can be created which you will be encouraged to try out.

When carved the block is then inked up with a roller with the ink covering the raised, un-cut areas of the block. The inked block is then printed onto paper, or fabric, either by hand using a burnishing tool, or with a relief printing press. Each time you make a print you need to re-ink the block.

There are different ways of making coloured and multi-coloured prints using jigsaw cut lino blocks, multiple blocks and reduction printing methods.
