Linocut Printmaking Art Workshop
It’s been quite a year, and there’s lots to reflect on. And what better way to think and process than with art? In this 3-hour workshop, students will be introduced to the linocut printmaking process. Linocut printmaking is a form of fine art printmaking where an image or pattern is cut or carved into blocks of linoleum to make a reusable printing plate. Using a single-color linocut approach, students will create prints from their uniquely designed plates that consider reflection and memory – whether literal reflection like in a mirror, or a figurative representation of a past experience. Through contemplation and learning new techniques, we will explore and have fun! Leaving with not just one, but a set of prints of your very own design.
To maintain the necessary safety and sanitation protocols, each participant of this workshop will be provided their own set of tools to take home after the workshop. These supplies will include black water-soluble block printing ink, soft-rubber brayer, lino handle, #1, #2, and #5 lino cutters, a 4 x 6 inch Speedy-Carve block, wooden baren and extra paper. This workshop is for all ages, 14 and older.
This workshop is presented in partnership with the MCL Grand and Thrive.
The fee to participate is $50 per person. Learn more and register at MCLGrand.com/classes.
