Linoleum Cut Relief PrintmakingParticipants in this learnshop will be able to use carving tools to carve an image onto a piece of 4 x 6 inch linoleum. They will learn how to transfer a drawing onto the block, carve the block, ink the block and print the block. They will then learn how to print the image onto paper, onto a card and then onto a t-shirt. We will use black ink to print a one color image. The participants will receive a piece of newsprint to transport the images created and then take the images home to hang dry.
Wear clothes you won’t mind getting dirty. Bring a sketchbook with ideas, a t-shirt you want to print onto, and a folder or binder to carry your print in.
