Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

The Art of Linocut with Jo Morley

Sun 9 - Sun 16 Jun 2024

Printmaking using the Art of Linocut with Jo Morley

You will have the opportunity to explore the versatile and effective technique of Linocut.  Linocut is a mindful and creative process and the results are always a delightful surprise. Jo will guide you through every stage from planning, carving, printing and using colour in different ways. 

You will be inspired by your beautiful surroundings and be able to realise your own ideas and enjoy the process to achieve appealing outcomes.  It is always exciting to work as part of a group and see how diverse and wonderful everyone’s artwork is.  

Linocutting is a relief printmaking process.  The area of the lino block is carved away using special gouges creating the ‘white’ areas.  The areas left behind create the positive image and the printmaking ink is applied using a roller.  Jo will demonstrate and show you various ways to print, in layers onto paper to create different effects. 

The Art of Linocut has endless possibilities.  Pattern, Line, Texture, Shape, Colour and Composition will all be explored allowing for experimentation, surprise and the most successful finished prints.
