Linocut Taster Session

18th June @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

£20.00 – £40.00

Join us for a taster session exploring linocut relief printing techniques and print a range of your own greeting cards, or designs onto paper.

Your tutor will guide you through designing an image for linocut. You will be shown how to carve the lino block, apply the inks, and print it – both with our traditional Albion relief printing press, and burnishing by hand. You will be shown examples of lino prints and advice on the kind of designs that work best.

What experience do I need?

This session is suitable for absolute beginners as well as those who would like a refresher and some tutor guidance. Don’t worry if you’re not confident with drawing and imagery, as simple shapes and patterns can be really effective for relief printing processes.

What will l make?

You will produce a series of lino prints onto cards, or A5 paper, and will have the opportunity to print using different coloured inks.

Who is my tutor?

Nat Searle is an artist based in Leeds. She runs a multidisciplinary practice incorporating printmaking and public art installations. She explores the relationship between stripped back graphics, colour and scale. Inspiration is drawn from her immediate environment with resulting pieces being localised or site specific. Nat is a cooperative member of Leeds Print Workshop and regularly works as one of our technicians, supporting members in the workshop.

Do I need to bring anything?

All materials will be provided for the session. If you have any drawings, images or ideas to work from feel free to bring these along with you.

We will refund you, less a 10% admin fee, if you cancel no less than 14 days before the start of the course, after this time no refunds will be issued. Transfers are also possible up until 14 days before the start of the course. By making a booking you are agreeing to our full course terms and conditions which can be found on our website here.

What if the course is cancelled?

We reserve the right to cancel the course for any reason (for example, insufficient bookings). We will endeavour to give at least 7 days notice if the course is cancelled and in the event of cancellation we will, of course, issue you a full refund.

Accessibility

Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible. By their nature, some printmaking processes involve an amount of physical effort. Leeds Print Workshop is based in a basement studio at Patrick Studios, a bespoke venue for artists operated by East Street Arts. It is wheelchair accessible, with a lift, larger than standard doors and accessible toilet facilities. We recognise that everybody’s accessibility needs may differ, therefore please email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org to discuss any concerns you may have before booking. There is one blue badge car parking space to the side of the building on Rider Street, subject to availability.

Please note: we regret that, for safety reasons, only those over the age of 16 will be permitted to undertake the course.
