Working in black & white and colour, this course will explore different ways of depicting trees in lino prints. You will be looking at different approaches for trees in leaf and bare trees, as well as stylised designs.
The course will look at how to use colour in your work and how to register your prints so that you can add different layers. A variety of different inking techniques will be taught.
You will be given guidance in how to adjust your designs for the printmaking process. Samples of different types of lino will be available to try and participants will be able to see the subtle difference these can make to the final outcome. You will be guided at every stage of the process and you should finish the course with a number of finished prints.
Most materials will be provided but please bring:
- Apron/old clothes
Please bring some images to work from, in the form of photos or sketches. You will be working on A5 blocks, unless you are a very experienced lino cutter, in which case you may choose to work on A4.
The cost of materials for the two days will be £10.
