Bring ideas for an image to transfer to a linoleum block. Before carving, we will look at different linocuts and talk about the positive and negative spaces involved in the carving process to determine how to proceed.
Linocut is a form of relief printing. The surface of the linoleum is altered using tools to cut away line or shape. This leaves a raised area that receives the ink applied with a brayer. Linocuts can be printed on paper by hand or with a press. If the press is used, there is an added impression or embossing where the pressure of the press has pushed the paper into the recesses of the linoleum.
Generally speaking, relief prints have a bold, graphic look.
Blocks can be printed in an edition, or as variable prints through experimenting with the printing process.
Self curate prints produced during the workshops for a 1-2 week exhibition at PrintSpace!
