Intro to Linocut
This introductory workshop will teach you all you need to know to create beautiful linocuts: from first draft to final print. We’ll explore various ways to compose an image and translate it into a drawing for a linocut. Demonstrations will cover the complete process: how to transfer the drawing onto the linoleum block, how different carving tools are used, what paper to choose, tearing paper, and using a press. A slide presentation of linocuts by favorite artists will provide inspiration. Discussions and experimentation will be encouraged. Students can expect to complete editions of one or two prints. Beginning level. Printmaking studio.
