Description: Explore the possibilities of Linocut printmaking to create expressive patterns on textiles. In this fun, fast-paced class students will learn the history behind the method as well as basic lino cutting skills, pattern development and custom colour mixing. Students will cut blocks, layout their design motifs and hand print their own set of Flour Sack Tea Towels to take home. Excellent for beginner and intermediate linocut students.

Audience: Adults - No experience required!


- No supplies are necessary to complete class, simple ideas or sketches for a lino carving might be helpful to some, but we will have class time to develop ideas. If you have your own set of linocut tools, feel free to bring them with you to class (even if you haven’t used them before!)

- Bring reading glasses if you require them for finer work.

- Bring a bagged lunch and a water bottle
