Printing Class 1

Last week I created this linocut image ready for printing this week.  I have never really done much printing with lino and struggled to get nice neat clearcut lines. I am determined to persevere though as it is something that is easy to do at home. We tested our linocut by making a rubbing with a graphite stick over a piece of printer paper. It showed up where there were areas that needed further work.

The bird image was inspired by a tile I had seen in the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery collection.
