Reduction Linocut: October

  • 15 October 2016 10am-4pm

Illustrator and printmaker Janet Dickson will lead you through the process of making a two or three colour reduction linocut.

From a single piece of lino that is printed multiple times, the image is carved away between each coloured layer of printing. This process requires careful planning and the destructive nature of the technique means you cannot go back to an earlier stage to make more prints.

Starting with the development of a suitable image and separating the colour layers you will learn how to cut and register each layer ready to print creating a small edition of original linocuts.

Suitable for

  • Not suitable for children
