Follow On Print - Linocut relief

Location Leicester Print Workshop
Date & Time Wednesday 19th + 26th June 6 - 9pm
Tutor Sarah Kirby
Skill level Intermediate
This NEW follow on course is perfect for those who have completed Intro to Print and for those with previous printmaking experience to develop their skills further. Broken into three 2 week courses, this module concentrates on linocut relief printing with artist Sarah Kirby. You will have two weeks to explore reduction linocutting. 
Working from one single block, learn how to cut and add colour by printing in stages, removing more from the surface of the block as you register and print in layers. You will learn about print registration, colour and planning your layered image ready to translate into beautiful relief printwork.

Course Structure

Week one
  • Planning a 2 or 3 layer print
  • Image transfer and first layer cut 
  • Inking and proofing first layer
  • Planning second layer
Week two
  • Cutting layer two
  • Inking and proofing  
  • Reflection and assess a final layer 
Individual progress can vary from the above, relative to the image complexity and participants preference.

 About the Tutor

I am an artist and printmaker based in Leicester, in the heart of the East Midlands. Since graduating from a Fine Art Degree in 1984 and being a member of the Leicester Society of Artists, I have been working as a professional printmaker producing work for my portfolio, commercial illustrations and private commissions. Over the past 35 years I have also been involved in working with museums, art collections and a number of Art Residencies and I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to regularly exhibit work with fellow artists, both locally and nationally throughout the UK.
