FREE Linocut Materials List

Linocut Materials List

This FREE 13-page e-book is the complete guide to my favourite tools and materials for linoprinting at home. By the end of this guide you will be confident in the essential tools you need to get started (such as inks, paper, lino and cutting tools) and where to get them.

The best materials get the best results...

That's right, I do believe that to get the best results from your lino such as:

  • clean cuts
  • smooth inking
  • consistent printing

you need to use the right tools and materials.

Plus it doesn't have to cost you the
earth!

Just a few good tools and materials go a long way (and can last you for years).

This guide shows you exactly what I use for my own linocuts and some top tips on brands and suppliers.

FREE mini course - Linocut: A Studio Tour with Susan

Linocut A Studio Tour

This FREE mini course is an open invite for you to join me here in my home studio for a tour of this space and how I use it for linocutting.

I will show you my complete set-up, from where everything is located, to which are my favourite tools and materials to my table-top layout for printing.

I have been designing and re-fitting my home studio space for the past two years and use it as a multi-purpose artist’s studio.

From sketching and drawing to painting and printing, this space does it all… oh, and I film the odd sketchbook challenge and online course from here too. Seriously I LOVE my little home studio space and have shaped it to be flexible, inspiring and convenient all in one go.

This is a great behind-the-scenes look at a small home studio space.
