Description

Linocut Printmaking (Introductory Level)
Date: TBA
Time: 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm
Instructor: Lauren Ponee
Fee: $50 plus HST (Members) | Fee: $57.50 plus HST (Non Members)

Students will learn the basics of linocut printmaking. Linocut is a relief printing method using a sheet of linoleum. A subtractive cutting method is used to take away the parts of linoleum where you want to leave the white of the page, and keep the parts you want to be inked! In the result you have a linocut plate that can reproduce the same image over and over again.

During the workshop, students will design an image, carve that image into the linoleum surface and print it a number of times to create an edition of multiple prints. To have plenty of time for carving and printing, students are encouraged to bring sketches or ideas for designing their image.

Lauren Ponee was born in Sydney, but grew up in British Columbia where she studied art at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, BC. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts, focusing on painting, drawing and printmaking. In 2008 she moved back to Cape Breton and completed a degree in Education at CBU. She now spends her free time working as a freelance artist.
