Japanese vinyl is a beautiful flexible printing substrate, similar to traditional linoleum, which can be carved and printed in a huge variety of ways. In this two day course you will experiment with new ways of carving, extend your repertoire of expressive mark making, and try out unusual inking and printing techniques, including intaglio and viscosity colour printing. Come prepared to be inspired by a wide range of print art, to experiment and have fun!
This course is good for a complete beginner but could also work well as a refresher/idea generator course for those with previous experience.
