Blind Embossing – Lino printing without inks

Blind embossing is an interesting creative technique. It uses the skills and materials associated with lino cutting, but without any of the mess generated when inking up a lino block. A lino block, plus dampened paper is rolled through a press, with lots of pressure applied. The outcome is subtle, but very satisfying, with the raised lines, shapes and patterns created when the areas of lino are cut away.

Saturday 18th September, 10 – 4pm, with just 3 places (to allow for social distancing), £69, including: tuition, materials, use of equipment, plus refreshments throughout the day; just bring your lunch.
