What should students bring?
An apron and a sketchbook if they would like to make notes, and an A4 folder in which to take work home in.
This course is for absolute beginners and those with a little experience, so I will be guiding you through the process of linocut printing in a structured way, looking at the tools and how to use them, and ways of designing dynamic images in linocut. We will consider the impact colour has on prints and play with blends as well as inking up in a single colour. We will create multi-coloured prints using the reduction print method, and also the multi-block method if time allows.
