Linocut printing is a form of relief printing similar to woodcut. It uses linoleum blocks which have designs cut into the surface using tools such as blades and chisels. The raised area that is left is where the printing ink will sit when applied and the carved area is left blank. The design is then printed onto paper or fabric and often multiple lino blocks can be used for different colours.

Linocut printing is easy to use and so is popular in schools, but more fluid and intricate designs can also be created as the lino is a softer surface and doesn't have a directional grain (like wood does) which can split. Remember that when you are drawing out your design, the print will be a mirror image.

Artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse started using lino blocks in the early 1900's and since then it has become a well known option for printmaking. There are many contemporary artists using linocut techniques and it is a great way to introduce yourself or someone else to the art of printmaking.

Our selection of linocut supplies will provide you with a great range of tools to create all the wonderful designs you have imagined.
