Lino Printing

Kerrie led us in lino cutting and printing over two monthly meetings in May/June. In April we cut our lino prints and in May we used the lino to print on fabric.  Kerrie had sourced some lovely lino for us that was a dream to cut and I absolutely loved this technique.

These are the lino cuts I made (they are back and front on one piece of lino):

I used one of my prints, embellished with stitch and beads as an ATC for a swap with Anne from France:

Each person was then given a copy of Pauline’s lino print on cotton to embellish as a challenge.

Next month’s meeting will be spent working on embellishing these blocks. It will be interesting to see what everyone comes up with on their block. Don’t forget to bring all the threads and beads you wish to use. See you all on August 13th.
