Block printing is essentially using a carved material covered in ink to transfer an image onto paper or fabric. Block printing can be done with wood, linoleum, rubber and many other materials. We will use linoleum in this class.
Participants will carve a 4"x6" image into a linoleum block and use acrylic ink to print onto a 5"x7" bi-fold card. Participants will create a series of six to 10 cards. Images that are printed with this technique are typically much bolder than other types of printmaking. Since the blocks are carved by hand, there is often less detail and more texture to the prints. Participants are encouraged to come with an image in mind. The instructor will have a few carved blocks of his own available to use.
Instructor: Kyle Darnell
