Linocut printmaking is fun and easy. Join in this one day linocut workshop and learn how to design, carve and print a one colour linocut print.
If you have never carved and printed with lino before, or worked with it years ago in school, then this workshop is for you. By the time you finish you will be equipped with skills to confidently continue hand-printing simple images and designs in one colour on a range of surfaces, include paper and fabric.
You will learn how to use the carving tools, then carve and print a linocut. We will print a small edition onto quality printmaking paper with a baren (no press required!).
My aim is to ensure that you feel confident enough to continue printing with lino in your own environment after you leave this workshop.
This workshop is suitable for beginners to intermediate, all ages over 16.

Below are images of prints created by students in this workshop. Click here to see more linoprinting workshop photos.
You will be able to take these skills home and confidently print at home.
We will cover how to plan a design and transfer it to the lino; how to cut and carve the lino; how to ink up the lino and how to print it. While carving I will show you various mark making techniques. I will show you hand printing methods, as opposed to using a printmaking press, so you can easily replicate the process at home with minimal equipment.
You will be given handouts with equipment recommendations so you can get started printing at home.
Once you have completed this workshop, consider extending your linoprinting skills and include colour in your work. There are many ways to add colour to lino prints, and in this 2 day workshop we will explore several of them.
All necessary materials for making your first lino print are covered in your Materials Fee and provided for this workshop. They include, but are not limited to:
– tracing paper and drawing materials to create and transfer your image to a lino block
– lino block approx A5 in size
– 2x sheets of printmaking paper, suitable to print an edition of up to 16 prints
– inks, rollers and other printmaking supplies needed to carve, ink and print your print
– tea and coffee, with a light morning and afternoon tea
Everything you need for this workshop is included and provided.
Lunch. You can pop into town to buy lunch, but it is a few minutes drive and parking can be difficult (Maleny is a popular weekend destination). Therefore I recommend you bring your lunch and maximise the time you have printing and learning in the studio.
Your design ideas. If you have something specific you want to print, bring your ideas along. But fear not if you are a little stuck for inspiration as I will have plenty of suitable images and ideas on hand for you to use and reference.
Please also bring a journal or notebook for taking notes during the workshop.
Participants are advised to wear closed in shoes, and suitable clothing or apron that you do not mind getting ink on. The inks can set permanently on fabric.
In this workshop we will print with water based inks, so washup of tools and hands will use soap and water, not potent cleaning chemicals.
We use sharp tools to carve lino. You will be given instruction on how to hold and use the tools, and it will expected that you follow instruction and take care while using them.

This (linocut) was my second workshop (first was cyanotype). I wish I could do every workshop Kim has on offer ! Kim is the consummate teacher and so knowledgeable. I’ve got my linocut tools now so off to practice.
Your workshops are always so well organised. You provide enough information without overwhelming me. You provide ample materials and clear guidance every step of the way, and your time management is outstanding! 🙂
Kim went well beyond normal expectations to support a complex image I, as a total novice, wanted. Can't recommend the course enough.
Kim is an excellent teacher and printmaker. Her passion for printmaking is very evident and she willingly shares her process, knowledge, skills and enthusiasm for all things printmaking. Kim's approach to helping me to learn about linocut printing was considered and patient. I would highly recommend Kim's workshops.
Kim is a talented, gentle and warm teacher. Her space is beautiful and welcoming, as is Maggie, the beautiful deerhound! I learnt a lot in this workshop - and really appreciated Kim's knowledge and generosity in sharing her own process and information about materials to get started at home. Kim also shared a lot about other artists, collectives and workshops. I such a wonderful time and feel well-equipped to get started on my own linoprinting journey! Thanks Kim!
The Studio is a perfect place to unwind and feel excited all at once! I’m a little excited with my bush turkey! You’re such a good teacher Kim, I hope you never stop doing what you do.
Absolutely loved it, the above changes are just suggestions - it must be difficult when you have different levels of skill!!
Linocut is much easier than I thought and Kim has infinite knowledge which she shares with everyone. Loved class and will book reduction Lino next
There was a great atmosphere to this workshop and it felt very relaxed. I had great fun and feel able to continuing lino printing on my own. The workshop was well paced and well planned. There was enough time to complete the objectives of the workshop. The resources available were a great source of inspiration. Having a list of resources etc is a great point of reference to get started with good basic equipment and resources. You were very generous with information and guidance, a great teacher!
Kim is very generous with information and her time. Kim’s studio is very warm and welcoming and I loved my time there creating prints from the limo I carved on the day. Thank you Kim for a fabulous day look forward to next time.
Kim is a passionate teacher and is a very sharing person with her skills
For me this was a return to my past. Life just happened and got busier and busier , so 33 years later I returned to where I left off in Year 12 art. It was amazing, I could have spent a whole weekend doing this . I am still thinking about the class and where I could take what I learned. Lovely location and great company too.
Very genuine workshop experience. We literally stepped into your studio for the day. Any criticism I have is not for you but the art form and that’s entirely personal. I love the clean lines, I love paper and ink and line work. It’s all beautiful but it doesn’t do it for me like oil painting. Stepchild haha.
I found your workshop just fabulous! The resources were great, and the space was so relaxing and creative. And I have to say I found your style of tutoring was the best. We were provided with lots of practical advice, and lots of inspiration. You moved the class along providing effective demonstration, and I felt comfortable to try my own ideas. I loved it and will definitely recommend it to others.
"I am not a beginner and yet I learnt so much. About using tools, mark making, sharpening tools, and doing a rubbing! Had never thought of that as a way to review progress. You are a great teacher, generous with your time and knowledge, patient, and passionate. Not precious about your knowledge and expertise like some teachers. It was great Kim. Thankyou." Julie --- "I hadn’t done Lino print for a long while, and after the workshop, I’m so hooked. And we also got lots of information for places to buy and places to visit for inspiration." Ellen --- "Love that Kim shared her knowledge of the Exhibition at the Gallery, and sharing her passion for her chosen Practice in the Art World. THE best workshop I have attended at the Gallery. Many, many thanks" Joan --- "I feel privileged to have been able to participate in the workshop." Margaret --- "Can’t wait for the next one!" Barbi --- "I had a great experience and look forward to developing my new skill." Sandy
Oh wow! What a great introduction to the magical world of print. Having completed Lino Print 101, I'm definitely coming back for more. Kim has a very humble and genuine approach to sharing her skills and expertise in the art of print, and her workshop offered the perfect blend of information, instruction and time to get lost in the creative process. Thanks Kim, I had a wonderful day.Linoprinting 101
I had fond memories of lino printing in high school...when I saw Kim's lino printing workshop and had to go give it a try as an 'adult'. What a fantastic day! From the stunning setting to the inspiration everywhere (including the beautiful Maggie) it was a day for the soul. I usually stick to drawing, but can get quite anxious about the finished product...i loved this class as it took the pressure out and focused on fun...i turned one of my drawings into a print and hey presto...i had 12 versions of my drawing that looked cool and graphic and I can now try out all my ideas on without 'ruining' the drawing. highly recommend this class! My husband thoroughly enjoyed making his samurai print too.
I did Kim’s Linoprinting 101 class and REALLY enjoyed it. It was super well organised and Kim is a great teacher and communicator. The class was well paced and Kim’s instructions very easy to follow. Kim is a talented printmaker who is very happy to share her knowledge and passion. She knows we’re all creative and understands our need to create. I look forward to attending more workshops in the future.
Kim was incredibly thorough with her teachings and she is a wealth of knowledge all things Print Making. She did not hold back any information when asked. Her passion for art is truly refreshing and contagious.
"Great feedback and tips encouraring and lovely atmosphere. Kim is a wealth of knowledge!" Kelly --- "Fast paced and focused. Great explanations and question answering. Lots of materials to play with" Christine --- "Excellent venue and easy parking. Kim is a great teacher and super organised. the workshop was well priced." Sarah --- "The teacher was excellent ........ Kim Herringe was very experienced and was very good at being able to pass on her knowledge to all her students . The setting at the gallery was perfect also and the staff there were very friendly and helpful." Jenni
Hi Kim, I firstly want to thank you for a really enjoyable workshop and I must say you're not only lovely to talk to but you're also a good teacher. Sometimes people can have a skill and run a workshop but they aren't good teachers. You are not one of those! I really enjoyed it.
I spent Saturday completing a lino printing workshop with Miss Kim. I must say it was the best workshop I have been to in years and would recommend anyone to attend. It doesn't matter your age, style or skill, Miss Kim makes you feel like a pro. Had so much fun. Thanks Miss Kim
I attended the Lino Print workshop yesterday. Kim is an amazing teacher. The class is well structured and Kim provided lots of advice and assistance. The whole day was a fantastic experience. I am now eager to start my next project.
Hi Kim, I loved yesterday. I even came home and started on the feather image. I am keen to do more workshops, not only was the space totally perfect but the format was so relaxing and informative. It felt like a retreat for the mind and soul. Your lovely, attentive and easy going style gave me the confidence to pursue with ease unfamiliar territory. Look forward to next time😊
Kim is a warm and generous teacher who combines extraordinary talent with a remarkably in-depth subject knowledge to provide a workshop which is both compelling and engaging. I arrived at the workshop with no background in printmaking and left with sufficient skills to use the technique in my own practice I would highly recommend the Linoprinting 101 workshop to anyone who has an artistic inclination, regardless of their current discipline.
I can highly recommend doing Kim's classes. She knows that everyone learns differently and she is very patient. At the end of a lesson you know you can go ahead and do this yourself.
You made it easy and we ended up with a great print we did ourselves. It would be great fun whether you are into art, crafts, printing or not at all - I recommended it to the friend who minded my dog yesterday. You are engaging and passionate about printing and shares whatever you can. I had been interested in trying printing and you literally made me think not only could I do it, but that it would be exciting, challenging and rewarding. You may never get rid of me.
Again I had the opportunity to attend one of Kim's lino printing workshops. She is unbelievable in the knowledge she has and is willing to pass on to you. Kim goes way beyond what would be expected of a tutor. I fully recommend her to anyone thinking of taking up a new art. Kim makes it so easy to learn. Thank you.
I did Kim's Linoprinting 101 workshop and really enjoyed it. Leading up to the workshop, all of Kim's communications about what to expect on the day and what to bring were clear and timely. The studio for the day was well organised and everyone had their own setup which allowed us to work at our own pace. The small group size (8 in total) was ideal for beginners and allowed Kim to focus on personalised help as we worked through our projects. Morning and afternoon tea was an added bonus! Kim is a very talented artist and her passion for her subject matter really shone through, both in her clear explanations of the printing process and in some of the inspiration she shared with us. I'm looking forward to my next class with her.
I really did enjoy this class! I definitely recommend giving it a go. Kim is super friendly and willing to help and nothing is so be of an issue. She is so organised from start to end which makes it a nice stress free experience. Where Kim held the workshop was a nice intimate space and everyone had a nice laugh and a great time. Definitely recommend do the course!
If you are thinking of a lino craving/printing class this is the lady to have as a tutor. I found Kim to be so organised with emails detailing everything to a T before the class. Her attention to detail in the class was was unbelievable. So much information my head was spinning. She presented us with a beautiful morning tea. The next day Kim followed up with an email with links and where we can source products used in the class. I have many praises for this lady. Thank you Kim
