DAY 2 Designing for Hand Coloured Linocuts with Grace Gladdish DAY 2


During this 2-day workshop we will work on designing a linocut for colouring, focusing on the design aspects needed to create a successful hand coloured relief print. Participants will learn how to design and carve a linocut specifically with the intent to hand colour. Colour theory and colour mixing will be covered in the context of hand colouring prints and specifically using watercolour. Participants will be supported to design, carve, print and colour their own linocuts.

Dates: Sundays 28th July and 11th August

Time: 10.00—4.00 pm (1 hour lunch break)

ABOUT GRACE:  I have been an exhibiting artist for 30 years, with solo shows including painting, sculpture, ceramics, collage and printmaking. For the last 10 years, I have been focusing exclusively on printmaking. A decade as a flower farmer has left its mark on me with a deep love of native plants and the environments that produce them. Now a full time artist, I make work about Tasmania, its landscape and the plants that inhabit it. 

I sell my work through local galleries and my website, and have been a finalist and prize winner in a number of Tasmanian art prizes.

As well as flower farming, I have been an tertiary arts educator, a mum of 5 and a carer for my daughter with disability. I love sharing my excitement about art.

Participants to bring: 

  • Ideas! (no reproducing other peoples art work – sketches, or photos to start from) We will design the linocut from scratch.
  • Any carving tools they have
  • Coloured pencils or watercolours if they have them.
