Tutor  Jonathan Costall 

This method of lino printing uses more than one piece of lino to create multi coloured images.

Each block is layered up to print a different colour so is more forgiving than reduction linocut. The tutor will be sharing some of his insight and experience on how to use two lino blocks to create a colourful print, explore the use of colour in your work and how to separate colours onto multiple blocks.

The outcome of the course will be a two colour A5 linocut print. A great beginner course or one to add range to existing skills.
