Summer Intensive: Linocut Techniques
Tuesday – Thursday, August 21 – 23 / 10 am – 3 pm
Beginners and intermediate printmakers alike will enjoy this project-based approach to linoleum-cut printmaking. Learn several techniques for multicolor printing as well as how to carve simple, beautiful patterns and images into linoleum. We will print using Japanese hand printing techniques and on the etching press. Students will be able to work from their own images at their own pace. Katherine will cover strategies for working with key blocks and tint blocks, developing pattern and choosing images that lend themselves especially well to this process. Students will complete this class with a small edition of handcut prints. You’ll learn all about the tools, techniques and resources you need to be begin linoleum carving and printing at home.
Supply list: Pencil, any 5×7 black and white images (photocopies or laser prints) you may be interested in using for a print (some will also be provided), linoleum or wood carving tools if you have them. All other materials are included with your registration.
