About the series: In this series, you will learn how to make monotype and relief prints without using a printing press. First, students will experiment with three different types of monotypes. Then, students will go on to handprint relief prints and will have the chance to explore both linocut and woodcut prints. At the end of the course, students will learn methods of bookbinding and compile their prints from throughout the course into artists’ books or use their prints to make covers and endpapers for sketchbooks.
About the classes:You will look at linocut prints by other artists for inspiration before beginning your own linocuts. You will plan out reduction prints, allowing you to make multicolored images, and will then carve your linocuts. You will print each color as they go to make layered images. If you are not able to attend the second of the two linocut workshops, you will still receive instructions for how to finish your prints at home.
You will continue to carve and print your linocut prints that you began in the previous workshop. If you are not able to attend the first linocut workshop, you will begin carving and printing your images. All students will learn about how to register their paper to layer their colors perfectly.
