Spring Print Fling! Linocut Workshop
Saturday, April 13
10:00am – 4:00pm
Get ready to welcome in the longer days and the first signs of Spring with some joyful linoleum printing! This one-day workshop focuses on introductory techniques of relief printing to create a series of small prints or cards to show off and share with loved ones. Throughout the class participants will learn to plan and carve linoleum blocks, pull test proofs, and print an edition using water-based block-printing ink. Materials will be provided, though participants are encouraged to bring flat, textured objects for printing like leaves, pressed flowers, fabric, etc. (keeping in mind objects will end up covered with ink).
Everyone will leave the workshop with about 10 cards or prints and some newsprint to let the cards dry overnight.
Students should bring:
- An apron
- A notebook/sketch book
- Optional: flat textured items
