This is a fun and relaxed workshop experimenting with a range of traditional relief printing techniques including monoprinting, block printing, collagraph and lino printing.

On the day, you will be shown each technique throughout the morning. You will be given a range of materials and papers to experiment with. This will form a body of work that you can use in the afternoon to work back on top of using a mix of techniques and creating a collage of your prints.

Materials will be provided including inks, papers and a ring bound sketchbook. You may want to bring additional paper to experiment with. Additional lino blocks can be purchased on the day if required at £2.50 each.
