Printmaking by Hand: Linoleum Cuts, Collagraphs, and Monotypes
The process of carving and printing from linoleum is a fast and easy way to create prints without a press. From the initial drawing, which gets transferred onto linoleum and then carved into it, to applying water-based inks and printing by hand onto paper, you can produce multiple prints from a single image. Explore a variety of mark-making methods and inking techniques to create individual, one-of-a-kind prints, as well as small editions of a repeated image. In addition, try printing from collagraphs and experimental monotypes, or “painted prints” from plates. No experience is necessary.
