Linocut Print Workshop
Saturday, July 29, 2017
9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Instructor: Pat Barnes
We will learn to design and cut an image into a plate, ink it, and transfer it onto paper. This one idea can be expanded and used for simple things (such as fabric paint on tea towels) up to the most sophisticated art forms, from hand printed greeting cards to treasured images as seen in fine art galleries and museums. These plates can also be useful when doing experimental art.
Color and registration of plates is also addressed. (A “rainbow roll” will even enable us to use several colors with one printing). An easy hand-made registration device will also be shown.
This fun, one-day workshop offers a chance to explore an ancient printmaking tradition, using modern tools and materials. Although the title involves “linocut”, suggesting linoleum, we will be using a soft cut material, much easier to cut and easier on the hands. To sum it up, this is a good skill that can be used in many ways.
