About the Course Tutor
"My name is Susan and if you don’t know already, I am a printmaking tutor and published author of two printmaking related books: Learning Linocut (an Amazon no.1 bestseller!) and Learn to Earn from Printmaking. There is a third on the way in 2018!
I set up my company 'Magenta Sky' in 2003, just after I left university as a
part-time venture. It began as a way of selling my crafts and also teaching printmaking courses and workshops in various arts venues.
Since then I have expanded to teach more classes and workshops, including a
unique online printmaking course ‘Introduction to Printmaking’. This online course (Learning Linocut: A Beginners Guide to Linocut Printing) is one of the modules from this longer online programme.
All four of my current printmaking / craft books, my longer online course and my printmaking blog can be found on my website
I look forward to you joining the course and creating some beautiful linocut prints."

What is Linocut?
Linocut is a form of relief printing that uses linoleum as the printing block (a composite flooring material made from cork and linseed oil with a hessian backing). This is then cut into using v tools or gouges to create an image.
Will this course show me how to create multiple-colour prints?
No, this course is a beginners course that shows you how to create single coloured linocut prints only. Further courses will follow in 2017 expanding on this topic. Alternatively take a look at the full 'Introduction to Printmaking' course at www.introductiontoprintmaking.com that expands further on this beginners course.
Do you teach courses in further printmaking techniques?
Yes, if you want to learn more about printmaking, I also have a full online Introduction to Printmaking course (available at www.introductiontorpintmaking.com) which will introduce many printmaking techniques.
