Linocut is a form of relief printmaking.  The lino is cut by hand using specialised tools or cutters.  This is then inked up using a roller and paper placed on top.  The ink sits on the relief of the lino and is transferred onto the paper.

 

The prints can be a simple black and white image or complicated using many colours.  This is often done by using a reduction or suicide technique, when a colour has been printed more of the lino is removed ready for the next. There is no going back!

Lino prints are produced by hand in the winnoworks studio.
