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.

Mono-printing workshop


Workshop date:  Saturday 18th May 2019

Workshop time: 14:00 to 17:00

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

Tutor: Ellie Green

Throw away your potatoes, this is mono-printing as you’ve never known it before…

Join SAS founder Ellie Green on a voyage of discovery using a very simple print process - mono-printing - in a new and exciting way that will change the way you think about print and enable you to capture the stunning flora of the Spring season!

In this 3 hour workshop you’ll learn how to work with professional, vegetable oil based, non-toxic printing inks to create one of a kind (there are never two the same) mono-prints from natural materials including feathers, ferns and other bounty from the forest floor.

You’ll first learn how to roll out the inks to the correct consistency and then how to hand-burnish them onto a variety of papers including musical score, salvaged book pages and more.

Once you’ve mastered the basics you’re in for a treat as we take our understanding over the process further, using our professional table top printing press to create more abstract one and two colour prints using a unique process discovered by Ellie through her artistic practice.

As usual we’d love to offer you not only the skills, but the tools to continue your practice too - so you’ll get a brayer (roller), a small pot of sample ink and a tray to take away on the day.

All materials are included in this super exciting, exploratory print workshop. Book online to secure your spot. Full booking terms and conditions are here.
