Lino Printing for Beginners

Join this fun, hands-on workshop and learn how to design, carve and print your own beautiful original Lino prints - no experience required!


This 3.5 hour Lino Printing for Beginners workshop in Glasgow's West End will allow you to try your hand at Lino printing and create beautiful original prints to take home.

What we'll do


The workshop begins with an introduction to Lino printing, everyone is shown how to use the carving tools and the basic cutting techniques. You’ll have time to experiment with mark making with a practice block.

Then you’ll spend time composing your design, no drawing skills required! You may want to bring some of your own images to work with, however plenty of inspiration is at hand to help you get started.

Once you have finished carving your lino, you will be shown how to ink your lino block then how to burnish prints by hand. You’ll have the chance to experiment with different colour combinations of ink and a variety of paper and card.

Everyone will take home all prints made during the workshop and their original carving block. The workshop is hands-on, creative and very informative. It is suitable for complete beginners and each step is explained clearly with demonstrations. Lots of 1:1 support and advice is given throughout by friendly tutor Louisa.
