Relief Linoleum Block Printing
About the Workshop
This workshop will cover the basics of relief printing—how to transfer images to a linoleum block, enhance them on the block, and then hand print the result with barens and wooden spoons. This process has remained roughly the same since the 15th century. It is an extremely DIY method that can easily be done at home.
Take a break from our digitally dominated world, develop your analog skills, and explore this beautiful world of hand-carved and hand-printed words and imagery.
