Get your rollers ready, your hands steady and it's Lino-printing go time!

Dive into the world of linocut printmaking in this beginners class, and you’ll soon be channelling Picasso or Escher. Linocut burst into popularity in the early 20th century as a printmaking technique. A design is cut, carved or gouged into a sheet of linoleum, and this stamp is then inked and pressed onto the fabric, creating repeating patterns. Lino is preferred over wood by many as it lacks a directional grain and doesn’t split. It’s also extremely satisfying to slice and cleave at a supple block of lino, creating a mirror image of your final design.

This class will cover designing and drawing your image, how to transfer it to a lino block, and best methods for proper carving to make a long-lasting and reusable stamp. Learn about traditional repeat patterns and how to print a large area with just one stamp. Your design could be a logo, pattern, words or a hand drawing. Once your design is complete, you can stamp it all over a mini fabric banner, tea towel or recycled paper. You’ll get to take your new stamp and prints home to keep honing your lino skills. Explore symmetry and tessellation through the satisfying practice of linocut printmaking.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class
