Linocut meets Painting: adding colour to your prints

Course Details

Where:
OPEN Ealing Arts Centre W5 2TD

Dates: 14 Aug - 15 Aug
Saturday 10:00 am
Fees: £100 Adults (£85 Concessions)

Join us for a new course “Linocut meets Painting” led by experienced print maker and artist, Jessica Rose. Painting and printmaking don’t often come together but in this weekend course we shall be melding two completely different disciplines with stunning results.

Saturday 14 & Sunday 15 August

10am – 4pm both days

Course Fee: £100 Adult (£85 Concessions)

Linocut meets Painting is a must for anyone who’s wondered how to take their skills in linocut further. During the short course you will

  • hand-colour your linocuts using watercolour or acrylic to create “varied edition” prints
  • learn how to create bold, expressive images by carving into a lino block and printing it in rich oil-based ink
  • and then learn how to take it a stage further by adding paint to your prints

Materials

You will be provided with basic materials, such as ink, proofing paper and two lino blocks (20cm x 15cm), but please also bring: 

  • Pencils and rubber
  • Paint (of your choice – it can be watercolour and/or acrylic), brushes and suitable paper for it. 
  • Source material, such as your own photographs and sketches, to help you create an image to print
  • Apron
  • Box/packet of latex gloves (to help you keep your hands clean when you’re inking up and printing)
  • Linocutting tools. If you do not have any you can buy a set from OPEN Ealing for £14 each. If you want to buy a set of tools from us make sure you contact us least two weeks before the course starts so they can be ordered in time. 

We are going to use some very unusual, semi-transparent Japanese paper for our final prints and we will put them in window mounts. The cost of these additional materials is £10 each, payable to your tutor on the day. 

We shall provide light refreshments throughout the day; however we do not provide lunch. Please bring your own lunch, or make the most of all that Dickens Yard has to offer.
