Printmaking - lino printing with chine colle
We will turn Botanical drawings into beautiful prints, with added areas of colour and pattern.
Learn about relief printing and the principles of printmaking. What makes this workshop even more interesting is the addition of chine colle, which enriches prints with areas of colour and pattern and is a chance to introduce a more graphic element to your work.
Making an observational drawing of plants or flowers, we will then copy this onto lino, establishing areas of patterns and lines. Along the way, we will test the images by making rubbings with crayons, before using rollers and printing ink to make our prints. Then we will begin experimenting with the addition of chine colle, the technique that makes it possible to add colour to prints.
