You're invited to get your hands dirty with an introduction to relief printmaking. Participants will learn a brief history of relief printmaking, and how to create, carve, and print a Linocut. The process consists of carving images onto linoleum blocks with carving tools, inking those blocks, and then pressing them onto paper. Participants will print by hand, one layer in black ink. There will be some designs to choose from, but you are encouraged to bring your own “5 x 7” image to carve. Students will be able to keep and re-use their hand carved linoleum block for future projects, like cards, wall art, and much more. No experience necessary, and all materials included.
MEMBERS $45, NON-MEMBERS $50
