Lino Printing and Woodcuts

Lino cutting is a relief printing process. Areas around the image to be printed are cut away with gouges. Ink is rolled onto the lino and the image is pressed onto paper. Further colours can be added by either cutting more of the lino away and reprinting with another colour on top of the initial prints or by making another lino block  for the additional colour.

Marie did a one day lino printing workshop at Green Door print making studio in Derby about 4 years ago, and that got her hooked on learning about the wide range of printing methods avilable.  She also did a weekend wood cut course in 2019 Here is a selection of lino prints and a wood cut of her cat enjoying a glowing stove, which later formed the basis of an etching.Click on a picture to enlarge
