A linocut is a printmaking technique that creates wonderfully bold images, the bonus is you can use the technique at home with a minimum of materials. For this one day introduction to linocuts, Mellissa will show you how to transfer your drawing onto the a lino block, how to use lino cut tools to carve your image, and how to print print by hand (without a press) on Japanese paper. The use of colour can be incorporated with a second linoblock and simple forms of registration and this will be demonstrated.
