This course will demonstrate the techniques of relief printmaking using the lino block, and MDF. Over a two-day workshop transferring the image to the block, use of tools, blind embossing, chine colle, inking up and printing on the press and by hand will be shown. Individual tuition will follow as students go on to produce their own prints in one and two colour. The ability to create a print using hand tools makes this a very flexible technique to pursue without continued access to a print studio. We have rooms to rent at €25 per night.
