Two day Lino Printing Course.
Saturday 24th February & Sunday 25th February 2024 (six places available)
10:00 – 17:00.
In this course, Susie takes you through the complete process of creating lino prints from drawing to finished print. This course is suitable for beginners and for the more advanced student.
Susie will start with an introduction to Relief printing, materials required and some safety guidelines. We will look at different styles of lino printing, then you will be designing and planning your own image, transferring this image to a lino block and carving the block through traditional and experimental techniques. We will explore more unusual tools for mark making and look at adding colour through reduction printing and through overprinting plates.
Students will learn to select and prepare suitable papers and create a registration sheet. You will learn how to print, both by hand and by press. You will also learn about signing and editioning. Each student’s style and creative vision will be expanded and developed by Susie’s individual attention and encouragement.
This promises to be a fun and creative weekend. Susie Quinn is a Mayo based artist and printmaker specialising in copperplate etching, lino printing and monotype.
