An introduction to Lino printing

Discover Lino printing with this direct graphic printmaking technique.

Produce a two colour lino print.

Learn how design, cut and carve and print a two colour lino print using an etching press and or wooden spoon to print the finished lino print.

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.
It will be possible to cut the first lino to reveal white on the print. The white will be from the white paper. This will be explained thoroughly.
2. Decide on image for printing. The print will include printing two colours.
Draw up an image on layout paper separating the two images. The first lino will be printed onto the paper using black ink. The second piece of lino with the detailed image will be then printed over the black using a pale coloured ink. The pale inks will be mixed and ready to use.
3. Once all the 10 black printed lino prints have been printed these will be left to dry
4. While the first prints are drying, lino cutting tools will be used to prepare the second piece of lino.
5. The second piece of lino will be inked up using rollers and printed over the first black print.

Images will be approximately 6 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.
