Kursbeschreibung

This course is on two ceonsecutive days. 

Design and carve a linoleum block and create a small edition, while learning printmaking tricks-of-the-trade. Each class includes step-by-step instructions on how to develop your project, as well as individual consultation.

Gain an overview of Linocut Printmaking, including the steps of the technique, as well as how it has been used by other artists. Learn about what kind of images make good linocut designs, gather ideas, and make preparatory sketches.

Explore the process of printing by hand, without a press, and its myriad possibilities. Not only can this process be replicated at home with few specialized printmaking tools, but it allows for an intuitive experimental approach. You can print on a wider range of materials, such as t-shirts or tote bags, and play with pattern and repetition.

Day 1: Creating your lino block (11:00 - 14:00)

  • Discover how artists have developed successful compositions using linocut printmaking. View examples from art history.
  • Choose a motif and develop a design for your linocut print.
  • Carve your lino block.
  • Learn about the different types of materials and objects that can be used as printing surfaces.

Day 2: Printing (11:00 - 15:00)

  • Test print and troubleshoot your carved lino block.
  • Create a small edition of prints (these make great Christmas cards!)
  • Experiment with printing on different surfaces such as colored paper, fabric, t-shirts…
  • Explore pattern compositions through repetition.

Linocut is beloved for being an accessible printmaking technique with a strong graphic presence and ability to translate fine detail. First used extensively by the German Expressionist group Die Brücke in the early 20th century, linocut quickly became a popular and widespread practice among artist and designers. Further, championed by the likes of Picasso and Matisse, this method of image-making is now considered a staple among the arts of printmaking.

Perfect for beginners as well as print enthusiasts already familiar with linocut and woodcut.
