Reductive Linocut and Color Relief Printing
June 16, 2019 – June 22, 2019
This workshop explores relief printmaking techniques, focusing on reductive linocut to create striking, multi-color prints from a single block. Students will learn carving techniques and approaches to color layering to enhance their own body of work. Demonstrations include how to prepare relief blocks and sharpen tools, systems of registration, and ways to integrate stencils and blend rolls into the printing process. Methods are illustrated for printing on an intaglio press and by hand. Discussion and examples of relief prints by the instructor and other artists offer additional insights and tips to help each student develop a personal relationship to the medium. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
