Adult Experimental mixed media Linocut printmaking course
January 4, 2024
session 1 – 4th Jan Tesselations
As with all weeks there will be step by step guidance and live demonstrations. This first session focuses on creating simple mark making in cut out linoprint shapes which can be turned in angles to create a repeat motif.
session 2 – 11th Jan Natural forms, collage and paint
This session involves creating a series of natural forms in small sizes which we will then print, collage and paint into.
session 3 – 18th Jan Taking a linoprint further
This session will allow us to explore stitch techniques, collage, paint and drawing elements that we can combine with our prints to develop them further.
session 4 – 25th Jan Moth/butterfly linocut
You will be taught how to create symmetrical forms in your lincut print to create a butterfly or moth design. This can be combined with linocuts from previous sessions to create a design.
Session 5 – 1st February Printing on a variety of surfaces
This session will focus on printing your moth/butterfly linocut onto different surfaces, such as pre painted backgrounds, tissue paper, fabrics, brown wrapping paper etc. The surface you print on makes a huge difference to the overall effect and this session will enable us to see that for ourselves.
Session 6 – 8th February Finalising ideas and Refinement
In this final session we will work back into our previous linocuts with pen, paint, water and stitch. This final session will enable us to consolidate, finalise or extend our learning and therefore will be more individually tailored.
