Connect with fellow artists and dive into the world of printmaking in a uniquely collaborative way! In this printmaking class, you’ll learn the art of linocut printing with a twist – all your creations will come together to form a beautiful zine on a chosen theme. This class is perfect for both beginners and experienced artists looking for a fresh and inspiring approach to printmaking.
Linocut printmaking offers a versatile and accessible medium for artists of all levels. You can easily continue creating linocuts at home with minimal equipment, making it an ideal skill for artists looking to explore printmaking beyond the classroom. You’ll learn about the tools and materials required, including linoleum blocks, carving tools, inks, and paper.
Together, we will brainstorm and select a theme for our zine and each person will create their own design. You will learn the techniques for creating your linocut, from transferring your image onto the linoleum block to planning the composition and detailing. We will explore various carving techniques as well to achieve different textures, depths, and shading in your prints. We will then print our designs both collaboratively on a small press and individually by hand. At the end of the class, you’ll get to take home a copy of the zine, including your print and everyone else’s.
