Workshop description: This workshop is designed for beginning relief printmakers. We will be working with the linocut – a simple, yet sophisticated, form of relief (or block) print. We will use linocuts to explore line and mass, positive and negative space, pattern and composition in our creative work. We will learn to cut blocks and “pull” prints by hand, experimenting with a variety of papers (everything from paper bags to museum quality papers). We will compose solely in black and white (not color) and learn how to professionally present our finished work for sale and/or public display.

  1. Exploring the tools and printing process
  2. Working with line and mass; positive and negative space

 

Session #2 (April 10th)

  2. Thinking beyond borders (using the whole block)

 

Session #3 (April 17th)

  2. Using ‘chatter’ as a design element

 

Session #4 (April 24th)  

  1. Incorporating text into the composition
  2. Numbering, titling, and signing finished work
