Intro to Lino-Cut Block Printing – Oct 26

October 26, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Wade Womack will lead you through the steps of block printing, teach you how to prepare your image, and to think about line, design and composition. You will create one block and several prints of that design.Wade will demonstrate how to transfer your image onto a lino-block, how to carve the image and create spoon-rubbed prints. You will love seeing the boldness and line quality created with this technique. Surprise yourself by creating art in reverse!  Your prints will be stored on a special rack to dry over the next two days and can be picked up or mailed at cost.Materials provided:  linoleum blocks, water soluble inks, printing papers, and all tools for carving and printing.

What students need to bring:   1 graphite drawing 4×6 (use softer graphite 4B and above), water bottle, and sack lunch.

Warning: transfer process will change the quality of original drawing. If you want to keep drawing pristine, bring copy of original but keep in mind image will print in reverse and if direction is important you will need to flip image so left becomes the right and right becomes the left to keep the original orientation on final print.

Pre-registration is required, please emailwade@alooney.com
