Botanicals Linocut Workshop with Jill Dunn
Taking inspiration from natural materials (flowers, pebbles, feathers, leaves etc) you will create a design from which to produce a simple one or two colour Linocut print. You will learn basic techniques of relief printmaking using a variety of tools and lino block surfaces. After a tutorial in tool use and an experiment with different blocks, we will design a carveable image and learn to transfer images to our lino block for carving. Once carved and test printed, you will use a table-press to pull a few prints from your block, learning about inks, pressure and different papers.
