All Things Linocut Workshop | Heather Shimmen
2 Day Weekend Workshop 10am – 3pm
9th – 10th June 2018
Early Bird Tickets $285 until 25th May

This 2 Day workshop will encompass all things linocut where the basics will be explained including image transfer, cutting, printing and accompanying demonstrations. We will explore experimental techniques incorporating collage, stencil and the use of colour and the resulting linocut prints will be transformed into beautiful layered works of art.

The imagery could derive from the surrounding bush land environment or you can bring along a favourite drawing/s, photocopies (must be a laser photocopy-not from an ink jet printer), photograph/s etc from which to develop a linocut/s.
