Course Description:

Intro to Linoblock Relief Printmaking

Linoleum cut (Linocut): A relief technique popularized by Matisse and Picasso in the 20th century. In this technique, a thin block of linoleum is mounted on wood. The artist then uses a sharp instrument to cut away the linoleum. Only the higher areas of linoleum are inked and printed, not the areas that have been cut away.

Objective

To introduce and familiarize the student with the fundamental techniques and concepts of linoblock printmaking. We will learn to design a sound composition and create a one colour finished piece. The techniques we will employ will be ideal for the home based printmaker. This course is designed for Beginners.

 

The Technique

Relief printmaking is a form of printmaking in which the image to be printed is raised from the surface. Pieces of material are removed from the surface using sharp tools called gouges.  This creates a surface similar to a stamp and is often referred to as "block printing".
