$126 for ACWL-Nuveen Members
Come explore the graphic process of relief printmaking using linoleum! A relief print is inking the raised surface of the linoleum after areas have been carved away. We will cover the steps of how to transfer a drawing or photograph to the block, carving and inking the block, simple registration, printing to paper and using a press. We will also explore the addition of color. Participants will be able to take what they learn and print at home. From novice to experienced, printmaking holds an age-old process that continues to engage the imagination and always holds the element of surprise.
There will be a break for lunch! You are welcome to bring a sack lunch or run across the street to Subway. (At the time of this posting, the Subway in Whitehall is currently closed – we don’t know if this is temporary or permanent, but we will keep class attendees posted!)
