Printing in Year 6

This printing is a form of fine art printmaking where the printing plate is cut into lino, or in our case, very thin polystyrene sheets. The lino is then inked, a piece of paper placed over it, and then pressure is applied by hand to transfer the ink to the paper. The result, a linocut print. Because it’s a smooth surface, the lino itself doesn’t add texture to the print.
This was great fun and took just over a day. Making our designs took time and then we experimented with different colours and the recreate patterns of our print and also added more than one colour.
