Linocut is a very enjoyable and accessible relief printing method, with many techniques and possibilities. Nick Morley aka Linocut Boy of Hello Studios, Margate leads this introduction to the process, offering tips to get great results based on his own extensive experience working with lino.
You will be shown examples of linocut prints, taken through the options for transferring your design onto the lino, safe techniques for using tools (including how to sharpen them), how to ink up your carved block, choose papers and operate the presses. You’ll be using a book press to make your prints, but there are other options too for printing lino, including an Adana letterpress machine and an etching press, and the pros and cons of these will be discussed.
No previous printing experience is necessary, the class is suitable for beginners and those wishing to refresh their skills. People who have taken this course can return to use our print studio during open access sessions.
