Relief Printing is the most basic and direct of all printmaking techniques. Ink is applied to the surface of a printing block and is transferred to paper (think of a rubber stamp). Yet despite this simplicity, subtle and sophisticated results are possible in relief printing. The possibilities are truly endless!
In this workshop, Tom will explain strategies and techniques for creating your own relief blocks. Participants will carve linoleum blocks and print editions on an antique letterpress. Come in with sketches or ideas and see how easy it is to turn them into prints you’ll be pleased with!
This is a 2 session class, we meet twice: Thursday, October 12th & 19th. Attendees must attend both.
