Learn how to design and cut lino blocks and make stunning prints
Teach me has developed a range of day time classes which will enable learners to undertake their projects at a slower but more intensive level of learning.
These sessions are drop in sessions and beginners are welcome though some previous experience is recommended.
Come along and join in our relaxed, friendly print making class and learn how to use traditional lino cutting techniques to create your own unique printing block.
Feel free to bring your own project ideas but don’t worry as there will be lots of inspiration and ideas provided during the session.
You’ll be shown how to adapt your own design so it’s suitable for print, how to use the cutting tools to make a variety of marks and textures, how to ink, masking, registration and printing.
Create a series of prints for framing or create a set of cards. Beginners will learn the basics of lino cut and design and complete at least one series of prints. Those with a little more experience will be able to produce a more intricate work, with the possibility of using more than one colour. You will be able to develop at your own pace with plenty of interaction with your tutor.
All equipment and materials are provided as well as lots of tea and coffee! The course fees of £20.00 per session (2 hours) is payable weekly, so you don’t pay if you are away.
