Workshop: G. W. Bot


This is an excellent opportunity to study lino techniques with a master printmaker.

Creating a print by cutting into lino is simple but can result in rich & highly complex prints. Learn how to prepare your block & registration systems.  Look at the various cutting tools & safer ways of working and discover printing by hand with a baren or how to use a press.  Various papers suitable for printing will also be explored.

You will be guided by linocut artist G.W. Bot (Chrissie Grishin) who studied in London, Paris & Australia & graduated from the Australian National University in 1982.
