Class Details

A subset of relief printmaking, linocuts are images made by carving the surface of soft linoleum blocks. Relying almost completely on our hands, we will learn to work with a variety of cutting tools, controlling their speed and pressure to create bold, clear imagery. The course will include introductions to various methods in lino printing including stencilling, collaging, reduction printing, while also familiarising students with the fundamentals of printmaking inks and papers – how to use them, choose them, modify them. We will also look at the history of the block print, its application in the textile industry, and its present day interdisciplinary potential. Students will work towards creating a diverse portfolio that demonstrates fluency across various techniques, using them individually or in combination.
