Sat 22 April 2017 – Reduction Lino cut 10am -4pm £70

alnmouth_art_gallery_where_to_eatReduction lino uses one piece of lino to create a multi coloured, layered print. This process requires careful planning and the destructive nature of the technique means you cannot go back to an earlier stage to make more prints. Starting with the development of a suitable image and separating the coloured layers, you will learn how to cut and register each layer ready to print creating a small edition of original linocuts. All materials will be provided. The size of the lino block will be A5. Images will be provided to use as inspiration but please feel free to bring some along to work from.
