This afternoon I began teaching a lino printing course for beginners for a community wellbeing project in Witton Gilbert. It will take place every Friday up until mid-December.
We started off by learning all about the tools and materials that we use, and carving out an abstract pattern to get used to the tools. Then we worked on carving a simple floral lino print. We then printed this up, again, I gave plenty of hints and tips on how to get the best print.
I really love everyone’s floral prints, and as always happens, each participant added their own touch to the basic design, and brought out a little of their personality in the print. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to photograph everyone’s prints, but here are a few for you to see.
Well done everyone, stunning first lino prints!
