Experimental Printing with Color
Experimental Printing with Color - July 12th from 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM - Sold Out
Get on this Workshop's Waiting List.
Workshop Instructor: Elizabeth Foley

Using carved linoleum plates and found objects, students will create colorful, multi-layered prints. They will learn to carve different types of linoleum plates; mix colors; and ink and print the plates by hand. Through experimental printing students will embrace chance (that “happy accident”) to create beautifully complex images.

A basic understanding of printmaking and linoleum carving techniques is helpful, but not necessary. Students need to be open to experimentation and developing an idea with several technical steps and have the manual strength and dexterity to use carving tools in soft linoleum. We will use oil-based inks and experiment with printing the plates multiple times in different ways.
