Reduction Linocut – 2 Week Course

13th May @ 6:00 pm - 20th May @ 9:00 pm


2 Session Course: Mondays 13th & 20th May – 6:00pm-9:00pm.

On this two-session evening course you’ll learn how to create a multi-colour lino print. You will develop an edition of lino prints with 2-3 layers of colour using the reduction method of linocut. Your tutor will guide you step by step through the process and you will use oil based inks and our traditional relief printing presses in the workshop.

What experience do I need?

This is a mixed ability course for beginners and those with more experience. Those who have an understanding of the technique can use the course to develop their skills further to produce multi layer prints. This is a great follow on course for those who have previously attended one of our other lino printing courses.

Lino printing lends itself to patterns as well as representational imagery, so don’t be put off if you don’t feel confident with drawing.

What will I make?

You will make an edition of 10-20 A5 lino reduction prints on A4 paper using different coloured oil based inks.

Who is my tutor?

This course is taught by Mick Welbourn and Joanna Wilkinson.

Joanna Wilkinson is a practising printmaker, illustrator and bookbinder. She uses printing, collage, analogue/slow photography and sometimes even old style colouring techniques like felt tips in her work. Joanna has recently completed an MA Creative Practice at Leeds Arts University and is also a Co-operative Member of Leeds Print Workshop.

Mick Welbourn is currently the manager of the printmaking workshops at Leeds Arts University, where he has worked for more than twenty years. Over the years he has taught printmaking to adults as well as to A level, Foundation, Degree and Masters students.

Do I need to bring anything?

We will provide basic materials including two pieces of A5 soft cut lino, cartridge papers and a variety of colours of oil based inks. The workshop also sells a range of different printmaking papers if you wish to try something different. Prices range from £1 to £3.20 per sheet.

If you have some imagery to use as inspiration feel free to bring this along with you, or you can use the examples, books and magazines in the workshop to develop your ideas.

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.
