PAD103 - Relief Printmaking workshop


with Chris Bray

Calendar Oct 23, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 3 weeks

NOTE:  Unfortunately, the class is currently full.  However, we can possibly add another class this quarter if we get a waiting list of 6 students.  Please add your name.

Relief prints are created through carving an image into wood or linoleum, applying ink to the surface, and transferring the inked image onto paper. In this introductory workshop, students will use carving tools to create images on linoleum blocks, which will be printed with oil-based inks using hand tools and the Vandercook press.  Studio time is balanced with a brief presentation on historical and contemporary relief prints. All materials will be provided, so come and give printmaking a try!  Min. 5, Max. 8
