The Beginner's Guide to Linocut by Susan Yeates
Okay, a bit of an oddity here for a wool shop. Teri thought it would be good to throw in a wild card when we do shows. Of course, due to Covid-19 we aren't doing shows so this handy interesting little book has made its way onto the website. Use it to learn to create beautiful and practical linocut prints at home. It has got really good reviews and linocut can be used in so many different fun ways.
Linocut and screenprinting have undergone a resurgence in recent years. This book teaches the basic techniques for learning to make your own prints under the guidance and tutelage of expert teacher and artist Susan Yeates.
Susan, who runs her own print business, Magenta Sky, explains the rudiments of linocutting, and guides you through ten practical and attainable projects including greeting cards, artworks to frame, labels for jam jars, seed packets and bags or tea towels to print and give as personalised presents. There are handy tips and suggestions throughout the book and each project begins with a list of tools and materials needed.
