Printmaking Workshop:
Mark-Making for Linocut @ Farnham Maltings in Surrey, Jan 2018

Date: Saturday 20th January 2018, 10am – 4pm

Details: Suitable for beginners, this one-day printmaking workshop will focus on mark-making for linocut printing. 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 make an image. It is a negative technique where the cuts that you make do not print. We will work through several printmaking exercises throughout the day exploring the varying qualities of lines that can be made and which tools you need to make them. This will include a mark-making sampler. We will also explore different ways to interpret an image through relief print, cutting the block, transferring a design and also how to print.

No previous experience of printmaking is necessary – just bring along a few ideas or images to work with and we will help you do the rest.

All materials provided – suitable for everyone – beginners welcome

Price: £45 per person (including materials and use of tools)

Date and Time: Saturday 20th January, 10am – 4pm

Venue: East Wing Workshop, Farnham Maltings, Bridge Square, Farnham, Surrey GU9 7QR
