Linocut Printmaking with Linda Griffin
Saturday, August 13th
10am – 4pm (lunch: 12pm-1pm)
Price: $100 + $10 Material Fee
Come spend the day designing, carving, and inking your very own original artwork on a Lino block.
Printmaking is a super fun and super satisfying form of art making. I will supply you with all the tools you need to create lovely, original linocuts.
All levels of experience are welcome!
In this workshop, we will cut into a piece of Lino block to create beautiful, one of a kind stamps. We will first roll ink onto our stamps and print ten 3×5 cards with envelopes. Next, we will roll fabric paint onto our Lino block and stamp two separate tea towels to use in your kitchen or gift to a friend.
This workshop will begin with coffee and croissants and books to inspire your original design. You will be provided time and paper to create your unique sketch. Next you will draw your chosen design onto a piece of linoleum. Then, you will learn how to carve out the negative space in your piece of linoleum. Then you will carve out the negative space in your piece of linoleum (so satisfying).
At 12:30 we will take an hour long lunch break. So feel free to enjoy all our great local options! Upon our returning, we will finish our carving and then you will learn how to use a brayer to ‘ink’ your linoleum and create your amazing prints on 4×6 cards and kitchen towels towels.
Each person will be provided all supplies, as previously stated. 10 cards with envelopes and two tea towels to customize.
It will be a fantastic way to spend a day! Bring a friend or meet some new ones! Looking forward to sharing this beautiful art form with you! All levels of experience are welcome!
