This workshop will introduce participants to the techniques of relief printmaking using the lino block, (while creating the woodcut will also be discussed). Over the day transferring the image to the block, use of tools, inking up and printing on the press will be demonstrated. Individual tuition will follow as students go on to produce their own plates. Blind Embossing, a technique that lends itself to the relief plate will also be discussed and participants will be encouraged to incorporate this into their work. Suitable for beginners; all materials are provided. Participants are welcome to bring along visual ideas (photos, drawings etc.) for inspiration.
