Service Description

LINOCUT PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP Saturday, April 22 at 12pm to 2pm Linocut printing is a traditional method of making limited edition prints from a carved linoleum block. Believed to have originated around 1912 from Russian Constructivist artists, most prints then were made purely in black and white. However, around early 1920s, linocut prints with colour began to surface in the UK. Picasso and Matisse are among some of the notable artists known to have produced linocut prints. ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP Linocut printing is a form of fine art printmaking where the printing plate is a hand-carved piece of linoleum block. The block is then inked, a piece of paper placed over it, and then pressure is applied by hand or printing press to transfer the ink onto the paper. The result, is a linocut print. In this workshop for beginners, you will use a softer rubber block which is easier to carve than traditional hard linoleum. WHAT WILL I LEARN? In both mono- and duo-colour workshops, you will be introduced to basic techniques of linocut carving and printing. You will first practise mark making with various carving blades. Once you are ready, you will carve the block. Finally, you will ink and print the image onto washi paper. This workshop takes you through the entire linocut printmaking process with easy step-by-step instructions. TOOLS & MATERIALS All materials required for the workshop will be provided. This includes a piece 10cm x 15cm soft lino rubber block (two pieces if you are signing up for duo-colour workshop), carving tools, tracing paper, pencil, as well as quality Speedball block printing inks (various colours), brayers, inking trays and aprons. You will take home your carved lino blocks and the printed pieces. LINOCUT PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP Experience and appreciate the unique handmade feel of a linocut print. Book your slot today! Cautionary note: Due to the use of sharp carving tools, please understand that participants should be 13 years or older.
