Lino Printing Workshop

Looking to get creative and learn a new skill? Then join Stirchley Printworks for a fun and hands-on lino printing workshop!

Lino printing is a printmaking technique, where designs are carved onto a linoleum block before being inked up and pressed onto paper. This makes for unique, bold and striking artwork.

In this experience, you will spend the day learning how to use the artistic technique of lino printing.

Your host for this short course is Stirchley Printworks, who are experts in all things printmaking. Under their wing, you will learn all about different processes and techniques to create lino-cut printed artwork.

  • A day course introducing you to the world of lino printing
  • Learn how to use carving tools, rollers and cutters
  • Plenty of support and guidance from your host
  • Learn about inks and specialist papers
  • All tools and equipment provided

This course is great for those who are just starting out in lino, or for anyone who's tried it before and is looking to blow the dust off their rollers!
