This is an AWESOME workshop that will make you fall in love with making multiples! The kit is FULL of supplies that you can continue to use in other at home projects.
Relief Printmaking is a printmaking process for beginners and experienced artists alike. It is accessible in the home without a press and can be used in a variety of ways on paper, fabric, among other surfaces. In relief printmaking, a surface is drawn on and carve out using carving gouges/tools. The surface is then inked up using a brayer and then printed by hand, or with a press.
This workshop will provide an in depth understanding of the relief printing process using linoleum as the carving surface. Students will learn everything they need to know to relief printing in their own home/studio. Students can expect to learn a basic understanding of printmaking, specifically in linoleum relief techniques. We will learn step by step in plate preparation, paper options, carving and inking techniques. Login details will be sent the day before your class.
