In this two-day workshop, explore the Linocut printmaking process. Making a Linocut involves carving an image into a linoleum block. With guidance from instructor Michelle Israel, artist and Director of Exhibitions at the Garden, we will start by sketching, drawing, and creating a nature-inspired design that will be transferred onto the linoleum. Then, we will practice carving the design to find the raised (uncarved) areas. This part of the design will be inked and then printed. You’ll have two linoleum blocks to practice with and one to create your final Linocut with. All your creations will be yours to take home.
