Introduction to Linocut w/Lana Lambert
Friday and Saturday, February 23 & 24, 2024
Gateway drug to the world of printmaking, linocut offers an accessible entry point for the novice and yet, can still be manipulated with great skill and depth by the old salt printer. Come and learn the potential of this workhorse material.
Students will create a veritable Rosetta Stone of linocut techniques that they can keep in their studio to use as a reference as they develop their own preferred block carving style.
- In this two-day intensive, students will be immersed in the practice of linocut and learn tips and techniques as well as be exposed to a variety of materials and methods.
- Lana will guide students through a series of exercises to help them broaden their mark-making tactics as well as develop and recognize their own unique style of carving.
- Along with linoleum carving techniques, we’ll show methods for transferring an image to the carving surface, demonstrate how to mount unmounted linoleum, and techniques for printing both using a printing press and pulling a print at your kitchen table.
- There are even some secrets divulged on how to repair some mistakes during carving!
