Linoleum Cut Workshop

Saturday and Sunday, November 8 and 9, 2014
The Art Complex Museum
189 Alden Street, Duxbury, MA
Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Join Holly at The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury for a two day lino cut workshop.

Relief printing is the oldest, most direct and low tech method of making an impression on paper. Explore the unique properties and qualities of linoleum as your medium during this two day workshop. You will leave with the information you need to continue making prints on your own! All aspects of the block-printing process will be explored: design, transfer of design to block, cutting, inking, proofing, registration and printing by hand. There will be plenty of opportunity for creative decision making and experimentation along the way!

Holly will use examples of her own work and that of others to show various techniques of printing with color. These include the reduction method, use of key-block, multi-block, stencils and masks, white line approach and adding color by hand. Water-based, non- toxic inks will be used.

Day one: Concentration on cutting the block with emphasis on line quality and variety, creating visual texture, consideration of negative/positive relationships and concept of reversal.

Day two: Concentration on approaches to printing from the block; inking, proofing, paper preparation, registration, the making and signing of editions and storage of prints. Please bring a simple drawing, motif, design, doodle or photo to work with. Still life objects and reference material will be available for additional inspiration.

Holly’s print, “Leaving” is part of the Art Complex Museums permanent collection.

Materials supply list will be provided upon registration. Cost $175.
