Traditional linocut printing

Traditional Linocut Printmaking

Course Description

Learn about the craft of linocut printing, which begins with the Victorian invention of linoleum and its radical use as an art medium from Edwardian times onwards.

On this practical course you will create your own linocut prints, exploring the materials, techniques, and illustration styles from Edwardian times onwards. Be inspired by the museum exhibits from the Victorian and Edwardian eras, view a selection of historical prints or bring your own ideas to design, carve, and print your own lino block; echoing the practice of the pioneering linocut printmakers, who made the linocut print the new art sensation. Traditional linoleum will be used; made of natural materials including wood flour and linseed oil.

Suitable for all abilities, with tuition on design, lino block cutting and printing techniques
