Block printing is something I have been interested in for ages but taking the plunge to actually buy some kit was a big step. Finally with my birthday money this year I invested in some essentials. There is so much choice out there.

They have really knowledgeable staff who don’t mind spending time to advise novices like me! I might do a post on what you need to get started later.

I recently got myself some proper printing ink and had a go today at printing my first linocut image. Here are the results.
