LINOCUTS – CREATIVE COLOUR PRINTING
Tutor: : REW HANKS
Class Full – Waiting List Applies
During this workshop participants will be introduced to a variety of colour printing processes using linocuts. Multi-blocks and colour reduction methods will be used in conjunction with stencilling techniques and handcolouring. Both Oriental and European cutting tools and printing papers will be discussed and a range of colour printing techniques and registration methods will be demonstrated using both press and baren. Participants will be encouraged to experiment with any of these colour printing techniques but are free to choose just one if they prefer.
Special emphasis will be placed on each participant’s individual needs and creative endeavours. The workshop will finish with a print exchange between each member of the group that will be compiled in a stylish portfolio.
