Course Description
Students will be introduced to basic printmaking practice of Linocut and will develop a range of skills over the
duration of the course. The course is aimed at those who have some printmaking experience or an interest in
printmaking; however it is also suitable for people who are new to art.
The course will cover the entire process of cutting and printing from the linoleum block, allowing participants to
explore their own work and develop ideas through this media. We will begin the course by introducing students
to lino cutting as a printmaking method, creating a line on a block, different texture, negative and positive image.
As the course develops students can also work further into the image on their blocks using color.
As students will be working from their own ideas, it is important to bring some drawings, photographs or other
images as source material. Students will be provided with a carving tools, start-up supply of lino, paper and inks.
Latex gloves and rags are also provided. Please also bring an apron, pencils, pens, a notebook and any other
drawing materials you may need.
