LINOCUT PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP

SATURDAY MAY 12TH 1-4PM

AT FLAX ART AND DESIGN - IN OAKLAND - 1501 M.L.K. JR WAY

SIGN UP HERE

Join me for a new workshop at Flax Art and Design in Oakland. In this 3 hour workshop students will explore the basics of linoleum block carving and learn the skills to create an original print from start to finish. We will go over carving techniques using the different tools, transferring your image to the block, tips on registration, inking and finally hand printing your very own linoleum block!

  • all materials provided
  • Students will leave with their own handprinted linoleum block print, a 4” x 6” carved block, a beginners linoleum carving set, an ink roller, a small tube of water based ink and a bamboo baron for hand printing.
  • please arrive with a simple 4” x 6”  drawing of the image you would like to carve into your linoleum block or inspiration and ideas for your print. There will also be templates available if you don’t have a planned image.
  • No experience in art or printmaking is necessary. This class is great for those who have never tried printmaking and want to learn the basics, or those who might be rusty in their skills.
  • recommended age 14+

You can also sign up in person or by calling the store at 510-867-2324.  Fees will be collected over the phone through Customer Service or in person at the store when you sign up
