Lino printing is fun and easy. Join in this one day linoprinting workshop and learn how to design, carve and print a one colour linocut print.
If you have never used lino before, or worked with it years ago in school, by the time you finish this workshop you will be equipped with the skills to confidently print simple images and designs on 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, and learn how you can apply this printmaking technique to other surfaces such as fabrics (and even walls!).
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.

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.
– 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 plunger 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.

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.
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.
