Description

In this class, we will be exploring linoleum and how to create hand-cut stamps and larger prints in linocut. 

It is essentially a beginners’ crash course, but the tips and tricks I share are things I didn’t know until 2 years into my linocut journey, so check it out if you are keen to experiment and maybe learn something new! 

I believe in you and I am so excited to meet you!

Remember to share your class projects. We are all here to learn and grow. Your art is beautiful and it deserves to be shared. It can ALWAYS be better, so don’t let that perfectionism hold you back. If you keep practicing and keep learning of course it will get better, but record where you are now. It is a perfect place to be 🙂

You will learn

The class project will involve making either a larger print or a hand-cut stamp (or both!).

I will go through how to create these in detail in the class with easy and practical steps. We’ll always do this together. The aim is to have fun, so don’t worry about the final product. You are here for the process. If you learn something new, it was successful, no matter the outcome. If you make something awesome too, YAY! 

You will need:

  • Lino (any kind will be fine, we play with both traditional and soft cut variations)
  • Block printing ink (I recommend water-based for beginners, but oil-based will do perfectly too)
  • Smooth Paper
  • A flat surface to ink on (I use a disposable palette)
  • A brayer (roller)
  • A spoon
  • A can-do attitude :P
