Using Japanese relief vinyl and your own design or image you will learn how to make a two or three colour layered reduction print. This is where one piece of vinyl is used multiple times in one print as the vinyl plate/block is recut after each colour printed. We will also cover tools, materials and registration techniques.
Japanese vinyl is a beautiful flexible printing substrate, which can be carved and printed in a similar way to traditional linoleum.
Although this is intended as an intermediate level lino/relief workshop, beginners have attended this course with very good results.
