ntroduction to block relief printing in linocut techniques. Working in water-based inks, we will explore one-color, reduction and multiple block prints, transferring images by hand with a baren and/or wooden tools. We will be looking at the importance of design; preparing images for maximum contrast and interest; pre-planning for multiple colors, carving techniques and tools for linocut; block registration methods and use of Terns-Burton registration pins.
This course allows all levels of experience to experiment in the process of relief printmaking. From those who are print-curious to advanced printmakers, students will be inspired by their own creative explorations, as well as the processes of others. This class will explore relief carving through variations in materials, technique and printing procedures that can be translated from traditional studio to home studio settings.
