Linocut printmaking is a fun and accessible printing medium for all ages and levels of experience. In this 2 hour workshop, you will learn how to design, carve and hand-print your own linocut and create a limited edition print. This workshop is designed to demonstrate a minimal setup that will enable you to create linocut prints from your home. All materials will be supplied; just bring yourself and a shirt you wouldn’t mind getting a little bit of ink on!
