New Art Exchange
Press Mess is a four week creative course for adults, led by artist Chiara Dellarba. Book for one session (£25) or all four (£90).
Week Three: Introduction to Linocut: you will explore the techniques of relief printmaking using the lino block. You will have an introduction to the tools and ink used in linocut printing. Together we will learn hand carving in lino, how to mount the block for printing, how to choose and mix ink for the final print.
Press Mess is fantastic way to explore a variety of printmaking techniques and find what suits you! You will learn a variety of printmaking processes through a series of projects and experiments. Preparatory work includes analysis and selection from visual sources and carrying out observed and expressive drawing. You will explore and experiment with printmaking media and techniques to extend your creative developments.
During the course we will build an online press mess museum with all your experiments and discoveries throughout
£25 per session or £90 for four week course
