This month we are introducing the brand new creative challenge, ‘Linovember’
We are challenging you to do some printmaking and create a series lino prints during the month of November. Your lino prints can be daily or weekly creations depending on the time you have available.
And if you don’t have all the kit for lino printing, try experimenting with other materials! You could try sticking textured material onto card and printing with that, or carving a pattern into a potato and using an ink pad… There are no end of creative ways to improvise!
Tips to make things a little more manageable
- Have some ideas planned in advance
- Organise your materials in advance
- Choose a theme for your lino prints
Ideas to make your lino prints a little more interesting
- Try creating a multi-colour lino print
- You could print onto coloured or textured papers or even onto fabric
At the end of the month, why not make a little video (up to three minutes long) of your lino prints and send it to us? Or just email us some of your favourite ones. With your permission, we may even feature your work on our site
We can not wait to see your lino prints!
And if you know any other creatives who might also enjoy this challenge, why not encourage them to have a go!
