Reduction Linocut Printmaking
Create an edition of multi-coloured prints.
This technique of linocut printing, allows you to produce multi-coloured prints using a single lino block.
You will learn to progressively cut, ink and print the image, seeing it slowly emerge, while at the same time 'reducing' the block.
(A reduction print can never be reprinted hence the name 'suicide method'). Each colour is printed on top of the previous.
For this workshop it is helpful if participants have knowledge of the fundamentals of basic linocut.
A minimum of two days is required for this workshop.
Suitable for all levels including beginners.
This process does not require a printing press, so there is no need for specialised studio facilities.
