On this two day course you will learn the process of reduction linocut under the guidance of a knowledgeable and sympathetic professional printmaker. The tutor, Ian Phillips, has been working in Lino for over twenty years and has a lot of experience surprising linocut beginners with the quality of their first print. Ian can also help those with a bit more experience improve their technique and outcome. The course will look at techniques, materials and tools as well as turning the seemingly complicated process of producing your own colour reduction print from one sheet of lino into manageable steps.
Please bring any pictures you find inspiring, a small image you would like to try producing as a linocut (Roughly 16 cm x 24 cm) and some enthusiasm. All materials and tools will be provided.
Ian Phillips studied Illustration at Leicester Polytechnic before working as a freelance editorial illustrator in London. While working on commissions he taught himself to print reduction linocut and in 2000 moved to Wales to concentrate on becoming a better printmaker and work in the landscape. Starting with the Dyfi Valley Way project in 2002, he now specialises in producing consecutive series of prints taken from drawings done while walking long distance footpaths or exploring particular areas of scenic beauty. Usually in Wales and but occasionally further afield.
