Workshop

Linocut for Beginners

Evening Classes in Printmaking

Date: Jul 30 – Aug 20Space: Workshop

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 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 4 evening classes, that will cover everything from where to look for inspiration, how to prepare your blocks, to using the CAN etching press to print a limited edition and even printing on fabric!

Use of the CAN tools and press, your first piece of lino and inks are included. You will eventually need to bring paper/fabric 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.

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 30 July – 20 August inclusive.

Time: 6pm – 8pm

Cost: $100 for the course. Pre-payment secures your place. You can pay at the front desk or online. Please contact bookings@thecan.co.nz for details.
