In this workshops, you will be introduced to the basics of linocut carving and printing techniques. You’ll learn how to identify what makes an ideal image for a linocut artwork. You will begin by tracing the selected pattern or design and transferring them onto the lino surface. Then, using various linocut blades, you will carve the lino block to create a positive image. Finally, you will ink the image using a brayer (or roller) with block printing ink and print the image onto a paper surface.
You will mainly focus on creating an image that will be printed with only a single color as shown in the example below.
For the intermediate to advanced student, this workshop will be devoted to designing, transferring the image, and carving the two-part lino blocks. You will test print and refine your linocut image, and finally print your design in a variety of two-color combinations.
