Print Workshops 3: Lino printing and making journals


After the blind embossing was finished I then asked the students to devise pattern repeats for their printing and they began to print with their lino blocks:




Prior to the workshops I had designed some concertina books that I thought would be reasonably easy but effective for the students to make. After experimenting with some printing at home I had two examples of journals that I made in order to demonstrate the techniques to the students:


After demonstrating the method of making the journals I then helped the students to make their own and here are the results:

I was so interested to learn about blind embossing from your last post, what a clever idea!

Your students have created some wonderful pieces and I love the combination of lino prints and concertina books, two of my favourite things!

Thank you both for your comments

Valerie - the blind embossing is great and I loved making these concertina books.

Gina - I really enjoyed making these prints and books with the students and was inspired by their creativity.
