Linocut Printmaking Workshop: Basics

Learn Linocut printing for beginners in Newstead



3 hours Class size 1 to 14     label $85

In this three-hour workshop, you will learn the skills of Linocut printmaking, and print your very own hand-cut works on paper. Once learned, this versatile and accessible technique can be applied to the creation of artist’s books, textile design, poster design and limited edition prints.

This class will cover carving out your image from a Silk Cut plate, line work and cutting techniques, safety, correct inking of a plate and hand printing. You will also be advised on how to hand colour your prints and introduce textures into your work.

You will take home a striking set of your own prints, your lino plate, full instructions and resource pdfs so you have the ability to print at home using this technique!

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.



What you'll get
  • Comprehensive introductory course in linocut printmaking
  • Your own custom-made linocut stamp 15x15cm
  •  All the prints you make

What to bring

Just yourself, your imagination and an image/drawing you wish to turn into your lino stamp (15x15cm).

Great workshop. Have to make sure you pick a simple design to make because there isn’t a enough time

Debra Aspinall Aug 2021


This was a good workshop for a rank beginner. The information was very helpful and comprehensive. Chris was interesting to listen to and I would recommend this workshop for people starting out.

Nicole Bray Aug 2021


A great intro to print making with a super knowledgeable and patient teacher. Am looking forward to making more print blocks at home now!

Jade Holmes Aug 2021


A great class and teacher. Chris provided a well rounded overview of lino printing, scattered with some printing history and background. Chris guided us through the creation of our prints, answering all of our questions and giving us lots of tips and insight into the different products and tools to explore if we wanted to try for ourselves at home. Relaxed atmosphere, nice venue and good teaching pace. Overall a really great experience!

The class was well organised and very informative- the process was well explained and assistance offered where needed. Interesting information about the history of printing was delivered during individual working time- giving a great back drop to the task at hand.
Great class. Lots of fun and really great walking away with a print to show to friends and family.

Amanda West Jun 2021


Good friendly instructors, good materials and a decent class size. Very enjoyable. Wine would make it better haha

Caroline Podd Jun 2021


Excellent class and teachers. Great venue and materials. Very informative about the process of linocut printing.

Jillian Finch Jun 2021


Personable and informative teachers giving a balanced class and much appreciated 1:1 help. The lecture on the historical aspects of printing was very interesting. Materials and tools were well organised; basic and airy venue was suited to the purpose and The 3 hour workshop was value for money. Recommended to others.

Chris Gork Apr 2021


Teachers were very supportive and instructions easy to follow. Not too many in the class, so it felt very personalized. I took home a completed lino print I can hand on the wall or add to now I know what to do. I would recommend this course to others interested in learning about lino printing

Michael Zrobok Apr 2021


I thought both of the teachers brought good knowledge and personality to the room. The supplies were more than adequate, guidance was clear on how to use them, & enough good examples of what the end product can look like I felt were all really instrumental in allowing us the freedom and confidence to explore the medium. I felt that the time-limit was appropriate for an intro class & I look forward to the chance to learn more about this topic on a later date.

The instructors were really great and patient in showing us both how to do the printing and also in telling us a lot about the process, materials and history of linocut. The materials provided were great. I left with a number of prints which I'm really happy with and turned out so much better than I was anticipating

Venue was good Materials were excellent and the teachers were real stars. I teach teachers for a living so am always unfairly hyper sensitive to how I am being instructed. These guys were brilliant. They were respectful encouraging and helpful. I will be back

Great class, fantastic and very approachable instructors and a relaxed atmosphere. Everyone finished their lino cuts and did printing in the time frame. Would highly recommend!

Stephanie Burnett Mar 2020


I thought that Chris and Claudia from Grey Hand Press were fabulous. They carefully and easily explained what and how to do each step, from the design/drawing to the WHS of cutting right through to how to ink and print your piece to get an effective look.

They provided all the tools and materials that you needed to achieve your final result.

The workspace area was well setup and roomy enough for the group to move around. Having a coffee shop out the front really helps as well.

I would recommend their workshop to anyone and will be looking into other workshops that they run.

Thank you so much.

Lisa Reynolds Jan 2020


A great night of creativity and learning new skills. Both tutors were helpful and very knowledgeable, sharing tips that we could take away with us to continue exploring the art of linocut. I was glad to be able to bring home a piece that I created during the workshop but also something that I can continue to work on and and see it evolve. Thank you!
