Lino printing

So what’s all that about then?

Well, the easiest way to describe lino printing is that it’s a bit like making a really big rubber stamp that you ink up with a roller and print on to whatever paper you fancy.

Each block is designed, traced onto the lino and then carved out by hand. If there’s multiple colours you would either make a block for each colour or apply different coloured ink to the areas you want on one carving. It gets good and inky and registering multiple blocks is always fun but it’s the little differences and quirks that make printing by hand so exciting and the results are always one of a kind!
