Linocut Printmaking Evening Classes
Term 3 with Lisa Feyen
Date: Jul 25 – Sep 12Space: Workshop
THIS COURSE IS NOW FULL – But please let us know if you would like to be added to the waiting list for next term!
If you are new to printmaking, lino is a great place to start! It’s also a medium suitable for exploration if you’re not a total beginner too, so if you want to get a little bit experimental and try out some more advanced techniques, sign up and join in the fun. You can refresh your skills and/or extend them and go at your own pace.
Tutor Lisa Feyen will guide you through the process of relief printmaking over a series of 8 evening classes, that will cover everything from where to look for inspiration, how to prepare your blocks for multi-coloured printing, to using the CAN etching press to print a limited edition and even printing on fabric!
Use of the CAN tools and press, and inks are included. You will eventually need to bring paper suitable for printing on, which will be discussed at the first class. Lino will be available to purchase through the CAN shop.
As full instruction of every class starts promptly at 6pm, please arrive to each class with a few minutes to spare. We will initially be working with A5 (148mm x 210mm) lino blocks, so if you want to prepare some images beforehand, use this size as a guideline. Preparation beforehand is not essential however.
What to bring:
Visual inspiration! (Photo’s, drawings, magazine snips etc)
A gold coin for a cuppa
Pencil/pens and some drawing paper (sketch books are ideal)
When: Every Thursday evening from 25 July – 12 September inclusive.
Time: 6pm – 8pm
Cost: $180 for the course. Pre-payment secures your place. You can pay at the front desk or online. Please contact email@example.com for details.
