Relief printmaking is the oldest type of printmaking in the world, dating back to the Egyptians in 500 BCE. In this class, you will learn the basic process for making linocuts, relief prints from linoleum. The process involves removing the “whites” of a drawing from a block of wood, a piece of linoleum, or some other material. The image left after carving is raised up “in relief.” Apply ink to the surface of the block, and the image can be printed again and again.  Space is limited; please call if you need to cancel.
