Event description

Description

In this full day workshop participants will engage with the design process. They will sketch and hand-carve a linoleum block, and print their original designs, while learning about the tools, inks, and paper used in the process. We will experiment with colour and detail, and explore value, positive and negative space, and the historical significance of relief printing as we go. At the end of the day each participant will leave with multiple finished prints and their own carved block, which can be reused to print more at home.
