Our Collectivist Masha Tiplady will be here on Wednesday 17 August between 6.30 and 8 pm demonstrating her linocut process and possibly printing on her new teeny tiny printing press.
Masha is one of our longest standing Collectivists, having joined in late 2017. Originally from Russia, she has lived in Edinburgh for nearly 20 years and works in printmaking technique called linocut, which involves chiselling a design into a linoleum surface that is then inked with a brayer and produces an image. I hand-print all my linocuts, one by one, using a custom built printing press, or, more often, just with the back of a wooden spoon. That means that there can be slight differences between the prints in the same edition depending on the amount of ink, the pressure I applied etc, making each print unique.
Please come along and see Masha at work – the event is free.
