Thursday 5, 12, 19, 26 March, 6.00-9.00pm
Tutor: Michelle Avison, Rob White
Cost: £230, includes lino, inks and paper.
Inspired by Picasso's linocuts (there are great examples in the current exhibition at the Royal Academy!) learn how to make your own multi colour linocut. You will look at examples of work by Picasso and use some of the same techniques to develop your prints. This will include drawing your image to the right size and planning the image over multiple blocks, or as a reduction print- or a combination of both. You will be shown how to use cutting tools safely, and different ways of achieving tone and different mark making techniques. You will then learn how to register the different colours on the same print, about mixing ink, inking your blocks and how to print by hand and on our Albion Press.
