TWO BLOCK LINOCUTTING
Wednesday 4th May at Ashmore Village Hall,
Green Lane, Ashmore. Dorset. SP5 5AL
A multi block linocut is where you carve an individual block for each colour of a print. You then print one colour over another. Since each block is separate it is possible to experiment with colour variations of the same image.
In this workshop I will demonstrate the basics of designing a two colour plate, how to transfer the images on to the lino, techniques of cutting and printing. You will also learn how to register the blocks so your two prints are aligned properly.
It is useful, but not essential, to have done a linocutting workshop previous to this one.
The day runs from 11.00 - 4.00.
Classes are very relaxed. There will be plenty of help and individual tuition during the day.
We will be working in the light and spacious village hall at Ashmore which has a lovely outside area with benches for relaxing on during the breaks. It also has extensive grounds with access to beautiful country lanes for a breath of fresh air when you need it. There is plenty of parking space.
Teas and coffees available throughout the day. Please bring a packed lunch. Maximum 10 people.
Cost is £80 including all materials.
