Linoleum block printing, more commonly known as lino printing or lino cutting, is a popular form of printmaking. The process involves carving a design into a printing plate using specialised lino cutting tools before inking the plate with a brayer (a hand roller). Once the plate has been sufficiently coated in ink, the print is then transferred to a piece of art paper with firm pressure that’s applied either by hand or using a printing press. Since the printing plate, which is typically a piece of lino or rubber, has a smooth surface that can be inked repeatedly, it allows artists to create high quality prints. A great activity for art-lovers, older children and just about anyone else who’s looking to try their hand at printmaking, it’s a fun form of block printing to try at home.
A versatile printing method, lino printing allows you to carve printing blocks using your own designs. With no limits to what you can carve, your only restriction is the size of your printing block. Have fun creating small personalised stamps, showcasing your illustrations using a different medium or experimenting with the different effects you can create with a printing block and the right tools.
