Block Party! Reduction Linocut Printing

Registration

$375.00

Inbal Newman
Thursdays, October 27 – December 1, 2022
6:00pm – 9:00pm

This intro class will cover the “reduction” method of relief printing to create a series of cards, mini-prints, or other artistic whimsies. Throughout the class participants will focus on developing a multi-layer image, hand-carved and printed from a single linoleum block. We will start by planning out a final desired image, and week-by-week carve away layers from the same linoleum block. Along the way participants will practice printing plenty of test proofs, and create a final edition to show in our last class.

Student should bring:

  • An apron for printing days
  • A notebook/sketchbook, for sketching and planning out ideas
