In this exciting one-day workshop, students will draw and carve a letter (or other design) on a linoleum block then learn how to print it using Pyramid’s Vandercook proofing presses. No letterpress experience required! If you are not familiar with letterpress printing, this is a great introduction. If you have printed before, this will be an easy refresher and chance to experiment with new techniques using relief blocks. By the end of class you’ll have a small print edition of your design, plus the opportunity to exchange prints with the other participants.
Level: Intermediate – Previous experience with relief carving (linoleum or wood) is strongly recommended, as the bulk of the instruction will be focused on how to set your block and print using the Vandercook press.
Registration closes February 9, 2022. Material fees are included with your registration to cover items provided in class, including linoleum plates, paper, and ink.
