Lino Printing by Hickman Design


My main practice as a printmaking artist is currently working from home and creating limited edition prints. The methods I use include many different printmaking techniques including screen printing, lino printing and monoprinting.


What is Lino Printing?


Lino printing is a type of fine art printmaking in which the printing plate is carved/cut into the surface of a block of lino. Lino printing has been popular for many years, and many people remember it from their schooldays. However, it is a versatile material and technique that can be used to create evocative and haunting prints.


Why Choose Lino Printing?


There are many reasons to choose lino printing to create designs and artworks, but the main reason is that it can be easily replicated at home. With just a block of lino, ink, roller and a wooden spoon you can create any design you want and at little cost.
