Printmaking • Linocut & Monoprint (Beginner)
Time & Location
About the Event
Discover the classic medium of Printmaking!
Create your own prints as Ashley Gaboury leads you through the process of carving, inking, and printing.
You will learn techniques for linocut printmaking and mono-printing.
This sampler is a great way to try your hand at lino block relief carving and printing with water-based media.
We will be using Speedy-Carve blocks as a substitute for lino in this class. All supplies included.
Teens & Adults Welcome!
We will start with the basics of how to use Lino cutter handles and various nibs, to learn proper carving techniques. Then in the last hour you will set-up a printing station, mix ink and make ink slabs. We will experiment with various colour gradients, using brayers, inking the blocks and printing with barons.
By the end of the workshop, you will have some beautiful art to share and the knowledge to do it again and again.
Block Printing has been around for thousands of years. There are many different techniques, but it is essentially using a carved material covered in ink to transfer an image onto paper or fabric. Block printing can be done with wood, linoleum, rubber, or any other materials, but we will use linoleum for this workshop.
