Spend two days learning this multi-colour relief printing method. This course is perfect for beginners or improvers. Work from any photograph, design or sketch – designs can be easily traced if you are not confident at drawing. This course is taught by professional printmaker, Alexandra Buckle whose scenic reduction linocuts beautifully capture the light and colour of the landscape. Reduction linocutting is a relief printing technique which involves cutting and printing several layers of colour from the same block of lino in order to build up an image, destroying the block in the process. It is a fascinating and rewarding process which wealds surprising and delightful results. Over the two days you will be given a series of demonstrations that show you the key stages and principles of the technique enabling you to plan and print your design with the tutors’ guidance and support every step of the way. You will be using soft cut vinyl type lino which is very easy to cut and print from and water based inks which are really easy to clean up and dry quickly. You will leave with a small edition of multi-colour prints and a great sense of achievement!
