ETCHED & CUT LINO WEEKEND
Sat & Sun 8th & 9th February 2020
10.00am – 4.00pm
Standard Ticket £185 per person
Tutor: Steve Edwards
Venue: Essex Print Studio
This exciting weekend workshop is suitable for those who are already familiar with lino cutting techniques and who want to add a new dimension to their practice. Over the 2 days you will create an A4 lino print using 2 or 3 lino blocks and combining both cut and etched marks. This will involve learning how to etch the lino block using a solution of caustic soda. You will learn how to register your multiple lino blocks so that they print over each other.
You will need to have an idea of your image to bring with you and it should involve some textural background areas and other, strongly defined elements.
Your tutor for the weekend will be Steve Edwards, Artist & Printmaker, who is a member of East London Printmakers; Greenwich Printmakers; and the Printmakers Council. You can see some of his work, including his beautiful views of London and other landscapes, which utilise the etched lino technique, here http://steveedwardsart.com/ For more inspiration have a look at our Facebook page to see some of the beautiful prints created on our previous weekend workshops – https://www.facebook.com/essexprintstudio/
