This workshop will give you a taste of what linocut and monoprinting is all about. You will make a one-colour linocut print to experience the processes of transferring a drawing to lino, cutting the lino, inking up and printing with & without a press. You will also make a number of monoprints. Monoprinting is a playful, colourful and rapid form of printmaking. Mono does not refer to one colour but to a one-off print. An inked plate is altered by drawing, wiping or masking-out areas with paper or other materials. This is then printed once (or sometimes twice) and layers can be built up to create colourful textures and patterns.
The method is an opportunity to freely experiment with colour.
