      This workshop is designed to give you the basic techniques required to start you in the wonderful world of printmaking! This friendly and open class is ideal for those who have never tried or have some knowledge in the medium. 

What you'll Learn:     How to Find an image (Google Linoleum block printing artwork for ideas), transferring image to block, carving block and printing. As you can see with the samples above of random artists(less or more advanced, the image is broken down into black shapes and lines and the area to be carved will be the white of the page after printing. The carvings are done from a Soft-Kut brand Lino block - Best brand and MUCH easier to cut for beginners than traditional linoleum blocks (more advanced type). Blue one - not a good type, crumbles. I will provide this block for you. The first class is printing in black ink only on white printing paper for a crisp black and white image.
