Etched Lino Workshop

Our latest course at East London Printmakers allows you the opportunity to enter into a new world of mark-making possibilities, by learning how to etch the surface of lino with a caustic solution. As well as introducing printmakers to this exciting – and sometimes unpredictable – technique, Steve Edwards will share the methods he uses to register multiple plates in order to create his dramatic large-scale landscapes.

The course will take place over 5 evenings throughout March and April, so if you are already a fan of the linocut then this course will give you the opportunity to add an exciting new dimension to your practice. To find out more about the course and book your place, have a little look at this.
