We learned how to make a reduction linocut at the workshop. You carve away parts of your image successively (so your print run is limited) and print up layer over layer of different colours. You have to imagine your lino tool is a different colour pencil each time when you're carving it out, to keep the different colours straight in your head.
I was out of ideas and asked on Twitter for suggestions. One that I liked was "an Iguanadon giving a thumbs up like Fonzie" (see below) but this was a bit complicated as we had 10 people making 8 prints each with the reduction method, so time was tight.
This robin was a bit simpler.
I still cocked it up though. What colour is fairly key for a robin red breast? What colour did I do instead? Oops.
