Learn lino printing during six-week course

A SECOND home for Creative Gladstone has given artist Felicia Lloyd the chance to run a six-week lino printing course.

"It is a great opportunity to access the new print studio at the Creative Gladstone's Crow St premises," Ms Lloyd said.

"After completing my bachelor of fine art in printmaking and drawing at the Queensland College of Art, my main aim as an artist and teacher has been to enable access to art in regional and remote areas.

"I want to give people an experience that makes the most of my education and experience."

Ms Lloyd said lino printing was one of the better-known print techniques.

"It is recognised for strong, crisp lines and high contrast black and white prints," she said.

"I think people are drawn to lino printing because it seems safe and structured.

"It can be predictable, however, it also offers unlimited opportunities for mark making and layering - elements that make printmaking exciting and more experimental."

Within the course, students will create prints using three different cutting and printing techniques to produce single and multi-coloured prints.

There will also be a focus on planning and composition using collage and drawings produced during the classes.

The course will run 6pm to 9pm on Mondays at 8 Crow St.

The first class is on May 11.
