    Join artist and printmaker Jamie Temple for this weekend masterclass in Lino Cut printmaking. Jamie’s practice is rooted in printmaking and woodworking from which he creates architectural and landscape inspired works on paper and site specific installations. His work draws from a fascination with the built and natural environments we inhabit and transform, taking inspiration from architecture, landscapes and the environment, and experimenting with process and materials. During the course Jamie will guide you to learn the essential steps of linocutting, introducing the techniques, tools and materials to create impactful and beautiful lino prints.

    You will first draw and plan your design, creating a practice printing block, before testing and trying out various mark-making techniques using a variety of gouges. Following a colour demonstration, you will choose your colour combinations before hand printing your final design in stages.

    Throughout the masterclass you will learn:
    -About Jamie’s work, processes, and his career to date
    -How to plan and draw your designs onto a linoleum block
    -How to use a variety of specialist printmaking equipment and materials
    -How to use a specialist printing press

    This course is suitable for all levels of printmaking experience, and will give you insight into Jamie Temple’s process in producing beautiful prints.

    The studio is a low-​toxic environment with dedicated printmaking facilities for professional hands-on learning.

    Once you have completed the course we recommend signing up to one of our other Printmaking courses to learn a new technique, or join us for Open Access sessions on Wednesday evenings and Saturdays during the day, giving you the opportunity to further develop your printmaking skills.
