Introduction to Lino Printing

  • Surrey Art School RH5 5DL (map)

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.
