Linoleum Block Printing: Transfer, Carve, and Print (ONLINE)
This class will serve as an introduction to relief carving and hand printing. During this three-session workshop, students will learn how to transfer and image to a block, carve the image in relief, and finally print their block by hand in the final class session. Linoleum block printing (linocut) is a similar process to carving woodblocks, and gives imagery the same graphic punch. However, it is a more accessible and easily carved medium. During our final class, we will print on paper, and students will also be welcome to experiment with printing on alternative substrates, such as fabric, decorative papers, envelopes, and whatever else they may be curious to try. Students should come prepared to the first session with a drawing measuring 4×5 inches to transfer to their block and carve. * Please note: Students will be using linoleum cutters to carve into linoleum blocks. Instructor will review the safe handling of this tool.
