I have recently been spending my Tuesday evenings at a little print class at the local sixth form college run by a very talented artist friend of mine.I have already got some print qualifications but always thought that to make prints you needed a press... my friend convinced me I didn't and encouraged me to come along to learn how... I have always loved the process of lino prints, it's so different from gocco, and I love the style of print that comes out of it.
I had a great time learning and it's been inspiring and invigorating to try something different for a change. It's also been wonderful to meet other printers and see how they work. Next term we are going in to greater detail on how to make repeat patterns and hopefully will be printing out own wrapping papers for christmas.In the mean time I shall soon be introducing a couple of my lino prints to Inkmeup... my classic wren design has been give a new twist and of course in the run up to Christmas I am finding myself increasingly Robin focused!
I can't wait for the next lesson... but I really need to do my homework first!
