Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th March 2022
In this 2-day workshop you will learn how to produce a linocut print using 2 or more colours under the tutelage of printmaker Helen Murgatroyd. Based around the multi-plate process we will explore ways of introducing additional colours into a linocut design using more than one plate.
By experimenting with carving techniques, overlapping colours and the use of ink extenders we will explore some of the many possibilities of using multiple colours in relief print. You will learn how to offset one plate onto another and how these plates can be effectively registered to produce the final artwork. We will work with a printing press as well as hand burnishing tools.
While developing your own print design you will be encouraged to experiment and test out new ideas in the print studio. The course will focus on sharing and exploring new techniques while producing a final print in the process.
Bring along some images or ideas if you have them; photographs, drawings or cut-outs from magazines.
All of our workshops take place in our studio at 22 Arun Business Park, Shripney Road, Bognor Regis, PO22 9SX.
