NUA - Lino Printmaking Masterclass with Illustrator Clare Melinsky

We were offered a Masterclass with Illustrator/printmaker Clare Melinsky. Clare's lino cut illustrations are so detailed and delicate. Absolutely amazing work.

The theme of the workshop was 'chance' so we were encouraged to work spontaneously and experiment by overprinting each others work and being adventurous during the cutting, inking up and printing stage.I was amazed at the marks you can create with the tools and the layering of transparent inks. 

I decided to create a lino from my sketch of St Paul's Cathedral I had drawn from the 32nd floor building in London the previous weekend.
