Linocut is a process where you carve into a flat block in this case vinyl and then roll the surface that remains with and ink, lay over a piece of paper and press to create a bold high contrast print. On this workshop you will be shown how to use the different carving tools to generate different marks, how to generate tone and how to effectively roll up with ink, align with your paper and print. If you are an absolute beginner or if you have been printing and feel as though you need some tips on how to get a better print com along. On the day you will make a one layer black and white print and also a multi-coloured reduction print.
