In this one-day practical, fun approach to lino printing workshop you will learn the fundamentals of lino printing, from drawing and carving your image, to the inking and printing process.
Learn about artists that have used lino printing, such as Margaret Preston, M. C. Escher, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. Explore different printing techniques, including black and white prints, multi-coloured prints and water-coloured prints, all of which can be practised at home.
