REDuction Linoprint Workshop with Alexandra Buckle at Claydon Gallery @ Claydon Gallery
Oct 25 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
REDuction Linoprint Workshop with Alexandra Buckle at Claydon Gallery @ Claydon Gallery

Alexandra will show you the reduction linocut method. This is a multi-colour relief printing technique which involves cutting and printing several layers of colour from the same block of lino in order to build up an image. You will learn how to plan a design and transfer it to the lino; how to cut the lino; how to ink up the lino and how to print it by hand. This way you can easily replicate the process at home with minimal equipment. You will also learn how to correctly register your prints so that all the layers of colour lay directly on top of each other.

Inspiration: Please bring an idea, design, image or photo that you would like to work from. You will be working on lino around A6 size. Feel free to bring more than one image if you are unsure what will work best as a linocut. Tracing a design or picture is fine if you are not confident at drawing.
Lunch: Please bring lunch with you as the Phoenix tearoom in the courtyard will not be open.
Glasses: If you need glasses for close work, please Remember to bring them!
