Learn to create your own relief prints inspired by the historic studios, workshops and spaces of East London in this lino printing workshop led by Jamie Temple.
This workshop provides an insight into the linocutting process and introduces the techniques, tools, methods and materials used to create a collection of handmade prints. Beginning with an overview of historic print workshops and spaces, we’ll be drawing inspiration from their architecture, surfaces and structures. First, you'll draw and plan your design. Starting with one block of lino you will make a single colour lino print, practicing with different cutting tools and ways of printing before introducing a second and third layer of colour.
You'll be using safe wash oil based inks which are easy to clean, but we recommend that you do not wear your best clothes, just to be safe.
