What to expect from your workshop with Kathy

Techniques taught in this workshop:

  • Learn about the process, tools, and materials needed for relief printing.

  • Practice cutting techniques and mark-making on a sample block.

  • Create a design for your linocut print and transfer your image to the prepped linocut block.

       (Bring ideas, drawings, and reference materials for your design, or ‘cut to the chase’ with some

        ready-to-transfer design suggestions.)

  •  Carving your block

  •  Inking it up.

  •  Print your block, both by hand and on a press.

  •  Learn about and test different printmaking papers and other substrates.

         We will be carving on unmounted ‘Battleship Gray Linoleum’ and ‘Blick Blue’ (Softer) printing           blocks.

All materials will be provided.

You will leave this workshop with your carved block and finished prints, and a list of materials and

where you can find everything you need to continue your journey with linocut printing.

Details:

  • Bring some simple designs that you would like to use for this class. (So we can spend our time

carving and printing!) We will also have some simple designs that you can use for inspiration.

  • The blocks will be 5x7 inches, so design to fit that size or smaller.

  • Please bring a lunch or snacks and something to drink.

  • Please bring an apron or an old shirt you can get inky!

No harsh solvents will be used in this class. The ink cleans up with ‘simple green’ (the yellow version)
