This weekend course is an amazing opportunity to work across disciplines - using lino to create expressive cut lines and inked areas which then combine with screenprinted backgrounds to complement and highlight the linocut. You will learn how to design your images, cut and print the lino and use stencil screenprinting. You will also be adding extra areas of printed collage with a technique called 'Chine-collé' so a course full of colour and content to really excite the palate.
