Multi Block Linocut Printmaking: Afternoon Class
Oct 5 – 26, Tuesdays, 1–4pm
with instructor Ingrid Booz Morejohn
Learn multi block relief printmaking, where each carved plate is inked with a separate color. When all plates have been printed in the order you decide your final print will have multiple colors and a finished composition. Depending on the transparency of the ink, where two colors overlap a third color might be created. We will be working on 6” x 8” unmounted Dick Blick “Battleship Grey linoleum” blocks. Upon completion of this course you will have made an edition of at least one multi-color print. You will learn several registration methods and learn how to edition a print run. You will have gained a better understanding of how to plan a multiblock carving, transfer your image to the block and align all blocks so they print correctly. Throughout the course you will be supported with instructional links and numerous print examples to support your learning. Several methods of creating color prints will be demonstrated towards the end of the course so you can decide how you want to continue with your printmaking.
