Margaret Preston Lino Mini
You are will be required to take your own photographs and complete a series of sketches of Australian Nature (Floral/Decorative) using the key elements of Margaret Preston’s Lino and wood blocks.
From these drawings compose a (20cm x 20cm) final composition for your lino. You must emphasise key elements of Margaret Preston’s work: composition, balance and rhythm. This image will form the basis of your lino print. You will learn the basic principles of lino techniques associated with carving and printing.
Alternate processes will be taught in the last week if time permits.
