In this class, students will learn the basics of linocut printmaking. The instructor will teach students about composition, safe cutting techniques and how to pull prints. Participants will leave with a variety of hand-printed projects, their own carved blocks as well as the skill to practice at home using basic art materials. Excellent for beginner and intermediate linocut students.
Audience: This workshop is suitable for both beginners with a desire to start printing or intermediate artists wishing to develop a more in-depth printmaking practice!
