Relief Printing

One of my hobbies is relief printing which involves using either lino or wood to make a printing plate. The lino or wood is cut away where you do not want the ink to be printed on the paper. There are a number of techniques which use either a single colour or multiples colours.

To print multiple colours there are a number methods that can be employed. The first uses multiple plates, one for each colour. The other, known as the reduction method involves using the same plate and over printing.

The following gallery shows my prints to date.
