Add colour to your linocut printmaking through a variety of mediums and techniques. Join Michelle Wiebe as she covers a number of approaches one can take with mixed media printing. Class time will cover basic linocut carving, inking and printing skills as well as how to use them with other art materials. Emphasis will be placed on utilizing other dry and wet media with your carved block in a number of different approaches to create one of a kind art with a few simple tools.
Students will leave class with their own carved block, several one of a kind mixed media prints, and the skills to keep incorporating printmaking into their art practice. This workshop is open to beginners with no prior experience to linocut printmaking as well as to artists with a printing foundation who wish to explore a different approach to linocut.
This workshop is a two day workshop which will be held Saturday, September 23rd from 10 AM to 4 PM and Sunday, September 24th from 1 to 4 pm.
All the supplies will be provided. Please bring a lunch for Saturday's class as well as water and snacks for both days. If desired, you may want to bring the following items along with you:
- Simple ideas or sketches for a lino carving might be helpful to some, but we will have class time to develop ideas.
- If you have your own set of linocut tools, feel free to bring with you to class (even if you haven’t used them before!)
- Bring reading glasses if you require them for finer work.
- An apron or work clothes for art making!
- A sketchbook and pencil to take notes or sketch
Single tickets are $135.
