The beauty of printmaking is the ability to create multiple images. In this 3-hour course, you will learn about the different supplies you need for printmaking, as well as the various techniques you can use to transfer photos and images onto your lino that will create clean and clear prints. You will also learn about the important concept of positive space and negative space and their respective effects on paper.
First, you will print in the primary and simple way with the baren. The exciting part, however, is when you get to use the printing press for your prints. This method will give you the possibility of making high quality prints. You can then compare the results of printing by hand and using the printing press.
Mona will demonstrate how to get the most out of your printing tools and materials. At the end of this printmaking class, you will go home with your carved lino block and prints.
This is a class that is meant to be joyful, so come and let’s have some fun.
