Printmaking mini-workshop

Our first printmaking taster workshop took place Saturday at the Charlton Art Centre, Dover. Visitors were able to experience and explore hand relief-printing techniques, from potato printing, mono-prints and linocuts. There was time to cut some lino blocks, using a selection of tools and environmentally friendly water-based emulsion inks, before pulling a short print edition with a small hand-press designed by German company Abig.

Below are two linocut prints created by John Rufus during the workshop (please click to enlarge).

Sponsored by Dover Town Council, the workshop was one in a series of community workshops being staged by the White Cliffs Creatives Guild in Dover through 2009.
