Introduction to Lino Cutting and Printing

 Tutor Hugh Dunford Wood


Come and explore the art of relief printing - the oldest method of printmaking.  It has gained popularity lately through the work of such artists as Angie Lewin and Mark Hearld, and the stunning mastery of Picasso.


Using your own images, you will learn how to carve into a lino block with special cutting tools.  You can print a second colour, or more, by the reduction process, or by simple collage.


You will mix colours and learn to register your prints, and use a press.  Hand burnishing will be introduced so that when you return home you can get instant results with almost no equipment. 


Lino cutting is a very direct process with which you can achieve bold and dramatic results that can be practiced at home as well as in a studio.  It is not difficult and it is fun.


All materials will be provided, but bring an apron and an image, preferably a drawing but a photograph would do.  You need no experience.  All you need is a willingness to explore.



Hugh Dunford Wood is a painter/designer who uses lino for collaged art prints, for handmade wallpaper and textiles, and a variety of other creative uses.
