I am so excited to be hosting this workshop at Arty Farty with Sarah Weston the best Lino printing Artist in the area. So, Come along and enjoy an ‘Introduction to reduction lino printing’ with print artist Sarah Weston. Reduction linocut is a method of block printing in which a multi-layered design is created from one lino block.

This workshop is suitable for those who have little or no previous lino-cutting experience. As a member of a small group, you will have plenty of support and one to one instruction as required.

 

During the morning you will learn how to turn ideas into a design drawing, how to use tools safely to explore mark making and then carve your first layer.
