Printmaking

Printmaking Lino-Cut (Part 1)with Gina Louthian-Stanley
2 classes: Mondays, September 27–October 4 • 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m. • $130 (all supplies included)
Using relief printing techniques, learn how to create a linocut relief print by creating an initial drawing (or bring a high contrast image 4” x 6”), transferring the image, and carving it onto a linoleum block to be printed. Relief printing is the process of carving away material on a flat surface. The remaining surface is then “rolled” with ink and pressed onto paper to make a final print. Students will get two blocks to carve for creating their own hand carved linocut relief print, 10 sheets of printing paper, two blank greeting cards with envelopes, classroom use of inks and use of tools. More paper and lino blocks available for purchase. (Part 2 will be in the Winter Session, featuring Geli plate Printing) Must have 4 for the class to make.  Use form at left to contact Gina with questions.register_button
