Printmaking doesn’t have to be expensive or even material laden; lino and monoprinting are 2 easy ways to enjoy print making at home! Using polystyrene we can create a child-friendly way to lino print as images can be created by using a pencil to make the relief aspect of your print, the polystyrene can be used to reprint the same image in different colours or even create a series. Monoprinting is a fun and fast way to create a one off print, drawing into the paint to create your image to be captured on paper.
