In linocut printing, the linoleum is carved away, leaving the design on the surface to be inked and printed. In this workshop, you will turn your own design, or a design or image of your choice, into a linocut print. You will learn use of the tools, carving techniques, application of inks, and printing on paper. Non-toxic inks will be used.
Bring a photo or snapshot (or choose from provided photos) to transform into a striking graphic image through linocut printing.
