Day Two: Following an example demonstration, you will work on a design for a ‘Reduction’ method linocut using several coloured inks to add dimension and effect to your design .

Day Three: Completion of ‘Reduction’ print, cutting, registering and printing possibly two or more colours to create an edition of prints.
