Making a multi-layer reduction print. In the third of this series of lino print workshops, students will explore in depth the process of making a reduction print. In this way of working, a lino block is progressively carved away between printing layers until the block is rendered useless, meaning that only a small, exclusive edition of prints is made. It is a very reliable way of making prints with many colours which provides a very singular set of challenges and a very rewarding payoff. Participants will spend time in the preparatory stages of drawing and planning the layers of the carve and print, with discussion of the pitfalls and benefits of different approaches. Colour mixing, advanced carving techniques and the use of registration tabs will be studied and put into practice in this project. The students will work on the project over the two days, giving a chance to really delve into the possibilities for their own work and culminating with the grand print reveal of the final layer! There is always an element of alchemy or magic to the print process and that is felt keenly in the reduction technique. Materials will be provided for the course, including inks and papers. If students are not following on from the previous courses, a take-home kit of equipment is provided or the student’s own equipment used. This workshop can be taken as a stand alone workshop or can be preceded by the past two workshops in this series from Ingrid. This is the most advanced session of the three available, so some prior experience would be desirable but not essential. Ingrid Nilsson (@ING Printmaker) works full time from her home studio making small edition hand-pressed lino prints which she sells via galleries, online store and from art markets across the UK (with occasional overseas appearances!) For 2023, we welcome Ingrid Nilsson to enable her to fulfil a dream to demonstrate and teach printmaking for the first time. Prior to Ingrid's first love of printmaking, she ran her own Edinburgh gallery/café, Bon Papillon, for ten years with her partner, Stuart. She writes: “I have often described my creative journey as a winding path, and while travelling it was often hard to see where it led or what turns it would take. As time moves on, I realise that everything I have experienced en route has accumulated to give me a diverse knowledge.
