What you'll learn in this printmaking class:

This course introduces students to the techniques of linocut: a variant of woodcut printmaking that they can achieve at home. The linoleum blocks are carved with gouges, inked with a roller, and then (impressively) impressed on to paper, printing a mirror image of the design. It features the option to print a small or large edition (multiple images) from the same block. 

Students will learn how to prepare images, carving techniques, and printing methods. They will make several smaller works. This class is focused on the ability to make sophisticated prints at home. Howell skilfully prints pieces on a variety of sizes on her dining room table! Students will be inspired by artists from the historical to contemporary canon of relief printmakers.

Materials List: 

  • 4 Unmounted linoleum blocks: one very small block for first day like 3” x 4” and three around 5 x 8” (Will talk about first class)
  • Carving tools for first day, the Speedball Linoleum Cutter Assortment is much better than the Niji set
  • Newsprint and Rice Paper for printing *Newsprint needed for first day
  • Block printing ink, the 2 1/2 oz tube is fine- your choice to use water soluble or oil based ink based for first day
  • Glass palette to lay out ink for first day such as 8 x 10” or larger (Masterson makes a great palette that comes in a container you can close up and save ink with the sides already dulled) If using a regular piece of glass please tape edges to avoid getting accidentally cut
  • Soft rubber brayer to roll out ink- 2” is fine, can use larger if desired! For first day
  • Paper towels for first day
  • Disposable gloves
  • Vegetable oil to clean up if using oil based ink
  • Transfer paper (such as Saral) 
  • Tracing paper 
  • Optional: apron

Unfortunately, we do not offer makeup classes. The instructor can tell them what they missed. Most of our classes are taught atelier style. If there is a demonstration during the particular session, after the demonstration the instructor goes to each student to work with them on a one-to-one basis. During this time the instructor can work with the student who missed the previous week, talk with them and explain what to do.
