Today was week 2 of a six week lino printing course for beginners for a community wellbeing project that I am teaching in Durham.
Last week we just used a U-blade to create our carvings. This week, we moved on to using both a U-blade and a V-blade to create finer detail. I also showed everyone how to create a gradient print.
Everyone started off with an outline of my oak leaf and acorn design, and interpreted it and the background in their own way.
We had a really busy group, with 10 participants, but it was so busy that unfortunately I only managed to get chance to photograph five of the designs. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to capture more designs next week.
Well done everyone, stunning lino prints!
