Linocutting is a very satisfying and engaging experience. Your image emerges slowly, after thoughtful preparation, careful cutting, and then the excitement of your first print.
If you haven’t tried lino cutting before we strongly recommend you have a go. If you have done a bit then take your linocut skills to the next level by moving into colour printing.

What to Expect on this course
This course will teach you all you need to know about making a reduction linocut in two or three colours. Work with Linocut Artist Katherine Anteney to plan and cut your image. Once you have learnt how to do a print in one colour you will move on to the next stage.
Discover how to print in perfect registration, lining up different colours using Ternes Burton Pins.
With lots of tips and tricks along the way, you will leave with a small edition of prints and a whole host of new skills in your linocutting armoury.
Hampshire Art Studio and Katherine Anteney will provide the materials for this course.
If you are keen to build up a collection of inks, rollers etc Katherine will advise you of the options and the suppliers.
The Neck, Saunders Island. (Print image at the top of the page)
The Neck is a thin headland on the North West point of Saunders Island which is situated to the north of West Falkland in the Falkland Islands. In a remote country it’s about as remote as you can get.
Saunders Island is 50 square miles and home to 4 people and 6000 sheep.
Katherine was lucky enough to visit this beautiful place while on a Shackleton Scholarship to the Islands in 2017. The whole island was breathtakingly beautiful and she saw King Penguins on the beach.
