Botanical Print-Making Workshop
June 1 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Create your own original botanical print using hand-carved linoleum blocks. Learn to work with positive and negative space as you plan out and draw your design. Then, after instruction in basic linoleum cutting techniques, you will carefully carve your design into a block. Learn printmaking skills such as proper inking and registration as you print your botanical design onto paper or note cards. Along with your prints, the block is yours to take home and re-use. Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the unique visual qualities of linocut prints. All levels are welcome.
Materials Fee: $20.00 (included in your course fee)
