Date: Thursdays, May 4, 11, 18, and 25
Time: 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

This four week workshop is intended for people who already have experience with
relief printing (e.g., linocuts, woodcuts). We will explore the compositional
possibilities offered by the linocut, but we will also move beyond black and white
printmaking by adding new elements to our compositions – color, stamps, and
texture. Participants will learn to register color prints as well as how to print by
hand and using Grove Gallery’s Conrad etching press. There is no materials fee for
this workshop. Participants will need to bring their own knives, linoleum, paper,
black ink and at least one tube of colored ink. All inks should be Caligo safewash
ink available on-line through Blick Art Supply.

Syllabus:
Session #1 (May 4 th ): Using color and texture to support B/Wdesign
Session #2 (May 11 th ): Working with color registration (2 blocks)
Session #3 (May 18 th ): Creating and printing outside our comfort zone
Session #4 (May 25 th ): Exploring variations on a compositional theme

This workshop is intended for people who have little or no experience with the linocut
and/or with relief printing, Its purpose is to encourage and inspire beginning relief printmakers. We will work with the linocut – a simple, yet sophisticated, form of relief (or block) printmaking. 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 paper). We also will consider how to add colorful elements to our black and white compositions. Finally, we will learn how to professionally present our 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 (May 9)
