Linocut for Beginners

Saturday 12th March
The Forum, Norwich

9:30am - 1pm 

£40
 

Please note: this class is taking place as part of the Norfolk Makers Festival in a collaboration with Stellabox and Anteros Arts Foundation, and can be booked via the Stellabox website.

In this workshop you’ll learn step-by-step how to make a simple A5 black and white linocut print, the start of your linocut journey.

 

You’ll begin by drawing your own design or using one of the designs provided and transferring it to a linocut block. As a group we’ll go through the stages of carving, inking and printing your block either by hand or using a small press. We'll talk about tools and techniques and you can ask as many questions as you like. There will be a variety of papers available for use and participants will leave the workshop with their carved lino block and their printed design.

 

All tools and materials are provided. The workshop is very hands-on, with everything explained in demonstrations as you go along, in a supportive and friendly atmosphere. I ask participants to please arrive 10 minutes before for a prompt start.

 

Given the uncertainty around Covid, I do ask attendees to take a lateral flow test on the morning of the workshop. Effort will be made to spread participants out as much as possible.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to message me on here or email me at stellabox@hotmail.com.
