Join experienced artist teacher and SAS founder Ellie Green for a comprehensive introduction to the Lino Printing process suitable for absolute beginners.

Linoleum is one of the most versatile materials for creating a long-lasting print block.

During this workshop you'll explore the range of options available for designing and carving a print block - exploring not only carving techniques, but how to get the most out of both the positive and negative space in your design. 

Ellie will also offer guidance on the types of ink available to you (we only work with non-toxic vegetable oil based inks - professional quality with beautiful vibrant pigments) and how to work safely with them. We will explore both hand-printing methods and press-based practice through the workshop.

The workshop will also support your creative development and Ellie will be sharing some fun and interesting ideas to help you find your own unique style.

Two Colour Lino Printing Workshop


Workshop date:  Saturday 13th October 2018

Workshop time: 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm

Workshop Location: Surrey Art School, Dean House Farm, RH5 5DL

Tutor: Ellie Green

Two or more colour lino blocks are much harder to achieve requiring a secure understanding of how to carve multiple layers but also how to register the block in order to ensure the layers line up.

In this 4 hour development workshop you will learn how to create a reduction print, where at each colour change you carve away a little more of the block's surface in order to slowly change the colour.

You'll also learn how to cut the block into multiple sections in order to achieve a quicker multi-layered print but that is not re-usable.

We'll explore further methods of mark-making, look at colour technique including how to create a gradiated colour print and you'll have lots of opportunities to experiment with a wide range of cutting and printing processes.
