Love Lino

linoThis week, John, a Justlife volunteer led a workshop in lino printing.

John’s day job is a designer and often whilst volunteering his doodling and drawings in the drop-in create quite a stir. To take advantage of John’s creativity and talent we invited him to run a lino printing workshop. The group gathered on Tuesday afternoon to learn the art of lino cutting and relief printing and have a go at it themselves.

The workshop was really popular and everyone enjoyed designing patterns and creating prints with specialist tools, lino and block printing ink.

The workshop attendees excitedly discussed the possibility of creating a large piece of lino print artwork that they work on together. We are hoping that John and his lino printing will be returning soon to Justlife Manchester.
