Course Content.
1.Introduction - A brief demonstration and explanation about the lino print workshop.
I will assist everyone in preparing the two colour image for printing.
This will be explained thoroughly.
2. Decide on image for printing. The print will include printing two colours, using two pieces of lino.
3. Draw up an image on tracing paper separating the two images. The first lino will be printed onto the paper using black ink.
4. The second piece of lino can then be cut to add further colour to the final print.
5. Once both pieces of lino are ready to print the first colour can be printed, for example - green and then using the other piece of lino a darker colour can be used. Most of the time this is usually black.

Images will be approximately 4 inch squared. All lino plates will be cut to size ready for the workshop.

Registration for printing will be explained during the workshop.

All materials are included in the course, including ink and paper.

Please bring found images or drawings to work from. I will give full assistance and guidance on preparing an image for lino printing.

Lucy studied illustration and graphic design at Staffordshire University after which she pursued a career as a puppet animator working for Cosgrove Hall Films in Chorlton-Cum-Hardy, Manchester. She animated on children’s television programmes such as Postman Pat, Andy Pandy and Noddy. During 2001 Lucy attended an evening class in printmaking and that is when her passion with the technique began. Lucy now designs and hand prints etchings and screen prints of an animal nature with a strong emphasis on character and humour as well as design and presentation. Lucy’s images have been heavily influenced by her animation career and by children’s book illustrators that she loved as a child. Her work can be seen at many art exhibitions and galleries across the country.
