Come learn the art of blockprinting with linoleum and take home 5 cards with your own design! Linocut printing is a printmaking technique where a design is cut into the Lino surface with sharp tools, then the resulting image on the lino surface is inked with a roller and pressed with paper to produce a print. In this workshop, we will go over in more detail what linocut printing entails and participants will design and carve their own linoblock, which they will then use to print cards to take home. As linocuts can be used hundreds of times before they wear out, participants can also take their linocuts home and continue printing at their leisure. All materials provided.
