DESIGN & MAKE YOUR OWN LINO PRINT PROJECT
Start your printmaking journey with our beginners’ Lino-Printing course!
This course will offer all the tools and guidance you need to start making your own prints and rubber stamps. You’ll learn about different tools and materials for lino-printing and rubber stamp making; experiment with inks and mark-making, and design and make your own print.
Choose from a selection of fun, simple applications, such as: t-shirt or tote-bag printing or hand-printing your own cards or artworks. Experiment with repeating pattern design or more complex, stand-alone block prints.
You’ll finish this course with your own hand-made project and your own lino-block to take home and use again and again! Additionally, you’ll have been provided with the knowledge to continue experimenting with printmaking at home.
