Discover the art of linocut printing

Learn linocutting from the basics or work on improving and developing your existing printmaking skills.

The course takes place over six sessions, during which you will receive individual guidance to develop your own prints, in black and white and in colour. We will work on image selection, composition and design, block preparation, image transfer and carving techniques.

During the course you will have access to all the basic equipment you need to make and print linocut. The instructors will give you advice on materials and equipment and teach you how to print without a press so you can carry on developing your skills at home.

Course tutors Robin Wilson and Rosie Fairfax-Cholmeley are linocut artists based in Oxford at the Wytham Studio.
