 blockprinting on paper – level 2

  • reduction blockprinting is a method I use when I print my art prints (see the little guy here)  and Id love to share it with you as its so magical and surprising.  In a nutshell, you use one lino block which you keep carving and printing different colours from, so that your print has many layers of colours printed on top of each other. The wagtail print here has white, light blue, orange, brown and green. Its so rewarding to print using this method - I love it ! It may sound complicated, but its not. This is for anyone who has done one of my (or any other) blockprinting course as I will assume you know how to use the lino tools and how to carve lino. We will make small art prints that can be used behind a frame on the wall or as greeting cards.

  • the course is 4 sessions of 2 hours each.
