Take your artwork further with relief printing! Lino Printing, or linocut, is one of the most popular printmaking techniques in Relief Printmaking. This course is designed for learning the fundamentals of relief printmaking. You will learn how to carve your own designs on a linoleum plate for making an edition of multicolour prints with the reduction cut technique. You will also explore the Chiné Collé technique for introducing an additional colour into your prints. The course will also cover hand printing, printing process, planification and paper handling, fundamentals of colour mixing, inking and print registration, as well as the use and maintenance of printmaking tools and of the printing press.
We love the meditative aspect of carving and the peaceful atmosphere when we are printing. Once you learn how to create with relief printing techniques you will be able to continue your practice at home, without the need of a studio, and just with a small selection of materials! Elena will give you great tips to continue printing at home!
We are delighted to start the new year with this 5 week course, to celebrate our recently upgraded studio! We can’t wait to introduce you to our new printing press! A classic Martoc from 1998 in perfect condition from the Toledo house Marciel Azañon 💛
