In this printmaking one-day workshop, we will create a series of small linocut designs and print these onto a table runner and set of napkins. Great as a unique handmade Christmas gift or birthday present!
Linocut is a form of relief printing that uses linoleum as the printing block (a composite flooring material made from cork and linseed oil with a hessian backing). This is then cut into using v tools or gouges to create an image. It is a negative technique where the cuts that you make do not print.
We will look at some example work, show you how to prepare your image, cut the lino, apply ink and most importantly get printing onto your fabric!
No previous experience of printmaking is required and no sewing experience is required.
