Linocut Printmaking

Linocut is a printmaking technique in which you carve a design into a sheet of linoleum using a variety of specialized tools. Learn how to design, carve and create multiple prints of your image. Learn a bit of the history of linocut printmaking and the possibilities for more advanced applications of this art form.  


We will use Blick Ready Cut Printing Blocks which are more versatile and easier to work with. Lino prints make perfect greeting and note cards.
