This one day taster will introduce you to techniques to print with plaster using two different processes; linocutting and digital image transfer. Linocut is one of the simplest methods of transferring and reproducing an image through print. In this case however, plaster will replace ink, to leave a three dimensional impression. Digital image transfer will allow you to experiment with transferring digital images onto plaster slabs. By the end of the course you will have learned how to mix and pour plaster and have produced two plaster slabs, printed with your images.
