A great printmaking workshop, introducing you to printmaking techniques and focusing on one of the easiest and most accessible techniques: linocut. Artist Ingrid Blixt will walk you through the steps of creating a linocut, from sketching to carving and printing, leading to a functional and artful product: two beautified stone tiles, which can be used as coasters, tiles or hanging artwork.
Participants should bring their own imagery to work from: black and white, high contrast images. The final image will not exceed 4″x4″.
Materials: stone tiles, linocut blocks, carving and cutting tools, printmaking ink, brayers, stain, felt pads.
