Full Course Description:
We will start the session by looking at some examples of lino cut prints. You will then have an opportunity to experiment with mark making techniques before working on your own design for a greetings card.
At this point you can choose to either use designs / templates provided by me as inspiration or you may decide to work more independently - drawing and/or adapting your own ideas to translate using the lino printing process. If you do already have specific ideas, you are more than welcome to bring these along on the day.
Printed images produced in class can be used to decorate one off cards – or they can be scanned / photocopied later to produce higher numbers.
One or more original lino print designs will be produced on the day which can then be used for greetings cards.
Who should attend?
Anyone can sign up - from beginners to those with an artistic background, but the minimum age is 18 years.
If there is enough interest I hope to run a short follow on course at the same venue in the Spring / Summer term. Further details will be provided on the day.
What to bring on the day:
Printing can be messy, so please wear old clothes or bring an apron to wear on the day.
Also bring inspiration for you own design if you have something specific in mind. (But don’t worry if not, as I will have lots on hand).
Finally – don’t forget to bring a packed lunch.
