Linocut Relief Printmaking –Yuji Hiratsuka
July 30 — August 5
Linocut is a printmaking technique using a carved sheet of linoleum for the relief surface. We’ll cut designs into the surface with chisels, keeping the uncarved areas as inked positives and the carved areas as negative space. Using hand tools, we’ll design images and carve linoleum, then print on washi paper (Japanese mulberry paper). Clear instruction and introductory exercises will guide beginners. Students with previous experience will be challenged to develop ideas and engage in more advanced techniques such as multiple-block color and reduction printing. We will be using water-soluble relief inks. Class Material Fee:$50. http://www.yujihiratsuka.com
