Learn the basics of linocut carving and printing (or practice your growing skill set) in this fun workshop suitable for beginners. Participants will have a choice of botanical subjects to choose from to create their own unique 3" x 4" linocut block. We will review different strategies to create texture and depth using a range of lines and patterns. Participants will have the opportunity to print their linocut using a waterproof stamp pad. The waterproof ink is perfect for painting over for those wishing to add colour to their design at home with watercolours or markers. We will finish the class with a printing demonstration using block printing ink and an ink roller. (Participants won't print their blocks with this ink due to the drying time required... we don't want to keep you at the shop all night!)
All materials provided. Emphasis is on having fun and expressing your own vision. Bring your questions, creativity, and curiosity! The instructor will be masked. Masking of participants is at their discretion.
