A Visiting Artist Workshop with Bill Fick: Anatomy of Linocut Printmaking
This workshop will dissect from start to finish the linoleum cut printmaking process. Participants will learn how to make bold graphic images by carving and printing from linoleum, one of the most common relief printing materials. We will begin by examining design strategies that maximize graphic image making; followed by practicing tool, skills, and carving techniques; and finishing up with probing the nuances of inking and printing by hand and on a press. All participants will produce a small edition using the linoblock that they carve during the workshop. No experience is necessary.
