These lino cut relief prints were produced by printing one element of the total image lots of times. The lino cut may be printed in different directions to produce many variations from one simple block.
The print may be scanned onto the computer and manipulated to produce different colours etc.

These cushions have been made using a variety of techniques in the Textiles workshop, screen print, stitch and most excitingly Pro flock vinyl. Pro flock can be cut using the vinyl cutter in 3D and then fixed onto fabric using the heat press in Textiles.
The 3D Workshop houses an industrial strength sand-blaster. It's used to remove the surface of materials such as glass,metal,wood and plastics. Below is an example of how it can be used to remove the glazed surface of ceramicc objects. The penguin is slip cast porcelain and was bought from a local charity shop; the design was masked off, using vinyl, (produced on the in-house vinyl cutter) and then blasted for approx five mins to expose the crazed, white surface below.
