We will explore the basic history and look at how artists that have used lino-printing in their work. How to transfer your own sketches into simple images on to lino.

Learn how to use your tools safely to produce interesting marks including exploring line, tone and texture to produce simple black and white prints. Use of the different inks and rollers to produce a simple print. You will also be taught different registration techniques. How to print using a press but also by hand successfully.
