The possibilities are endless when it comes to lino cut printing. It's like a canvas capturing your creative journey which then can transform into a wall tapestry, pillow slips, a bag.. Whatever your creative heart conjures up.
In this workshop with multi-talented artist, Shawnee Dean from Made & Found, you'll get to learn the craft of lino cut printmaking. We'll be playing around with Australian botanical themed designs, and be inspired by the interesting textures and shapes of our native flora, to carve out your very own linocut block. You'll print your design onto a handmade mini canvas tapestry, greeting cards and more, demonstrating the versatility of your linocut block print. Can't you just picture it, your Australiana tapestry hanging on the wall, behind a bouquet of banksia and other fresh native botanicals?.. Swooooon.
Lino cut is ideal for beginners and follows the principle of raising an image to the surface by carving out negative space to create bold, stylistic prints. After studying printmaking at Queensland College of Art, Shawnee will share with you all her skills and knowledge in the field of relief printmaking to have you comfortable and having fun creating prints on all different kinds of surfaces in no time.
Come and discover just how satisfying the creative process of linocut really is and go home with some amazing prints of your own design.
