Printmaking with Lino 30th AUGUST + 27th SEPTEMBER
Friday 30th AUGUST 7:30pm - 10pm
Friday 27th SEPTEMBER 7:30pm - 10pm
Carve a design into lino then relief print it onto printmaking paper, which you can then frame as a unique artwork. Good old-fashioned messy fun, but not at your house so you don't have to deal with the aftermath.
In the first class, we will work on a design which incorporates the printmaking concepts of negative space and texture. You may wish to bring an image as a starting point for your initial sketches. Once the design has been finalised it will be transferred onto the lino and, using the provided tools, you will cut your design from the surface.
The second class will be spent printing your image and exploring colours and printmaking techniques to produce your final artwork. At the end you will take your cut lino design home to experiment with — think textiles, wrapping paper, gift cards and more!
Note: This is a pressure-free project with no experience required. Our classes are about having a fun time being creative surrounded by lovely people!
Cost: $80 for two nights, which includes all materials (lino, cutting tools, printmaking paper, ink) as well as teaching and a drink.
