Adult Art Workshops- Printmaking
with Jelena Lockett
This is a comprehensive introductory course in linocut printmaking. Linoleum printing is a form of relief printing, one of the most accessible and direct of all the printmaking methods. Linocuts can be simple and graphic, or as intricately detailed as you want. It’s a subtractive process, meaning you cut away, or subtract, the areas you do not want to print. Linocuts can be printed onto almost any type of paper or fabric. Enjoy six sessions where Jelena will guide you through each stage as you produce your own custom-made lino block stamp and print. You will explore printing on a range of surfaces and will explore techniques such as Chine- colle, collage and painting directly into your print. Please bring an image or drawing you wish to turn into your lino stamp (15 x 15cm) and your imagination! No prior experience is needed.
