Linocut Workshop

with G Caruso

Design and carve a linoleum block and create a small edition, while learning printmaking tricks-of-the-trade. Experiment with modern printing techniques using collage, hand painting, and alternative printing surfaces such as fabric. Each class will include step-by-step instructions on how to develop projects, as well as individual consultation. For more advanced students, there will also be the opportunity to print with multiple plates and multiple colors.

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.

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 and print enthusiasts already familiar with linocut and woodcut.
