Linocut printing workshop

  • Cockenzie House and Gardens 22 Edinburgh Road Cockenzie United Kingdom (map)

Spend a day designing, carving and printing your own two colour linocut print.

Linocut printing is a great introduction to printmaking, and one that requires little specialist equipment. A design is carved into the lino block, then is covered in ink and printed. The design can be simple or complicated - the possibilities are endless.

We will explore designing for lino, transferring and carving those designs onto the block, printing with and without a press, and printing multiple colours with more than one block. Everyone will produce their own small set of prints.

Bring your own lunch or eat at the wonderful on-site cafe/restaurant.

Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
