This workshop is an introduction to relief printing using an especially soft linoleum product that cuts effortlessly. Students will discover a simple way to create multiple images for cards and gifts as well as fine art. Beginners will learn basic technical skills related to both color and black-and-white printing while advanced students will be taught more complex techniques to realize their artistic vision. Using the press or a wooden spoon, participants can print one-of-a-kind images or whole editions. We will discuss processes such as color reduction, chine colle and monoprinting to enhance your artwork. No previous experience is necessary to obtain excellent and professional results from this medium.
