The last workshop I did at Warren Editions was way back in 2011. I loved it so much, so it is unfathomable why it took me so long to sign up for another? Ah well, regrets at lost opportunities aside, I was happy to spend my Saturday at Warren Editions – which has expanded significantly since my last visit – for the first of the four CMYK lino printing workshops I’ll be taking in July.
Printmaker Morné Visage is leading the workshop, and had a mass of information to share about colours, paper, mixing inks, etc.
The other interesting thing to know about Morné is that he has a show of his prints (see below right) opening at Whatiftheworld Gallery on Thursday! More here.
I spent most of the session tracing the image I’m planning to print with different colour pencils (why did I choose such a fiddly one?), and then made a start at carving my first lino, which I’ll use to print my Yellow layer next week.
Tune in again next week, for the next slow-paced episode of Making Friday: CMYK lino printing #02
