Two-Part Workshop: Linocut Prints

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

In this two-part workshop, you will learn how to design, carve and print a one-color linoleum block.  You will learn what tools to use, how to plan your image from sketches, transfer your final design, carve with multiple blades, and then handprint a simple edition of your final block.  You will leave with the skills to print more designs at home or in your studio.
Linocut is a relief form of printmaking, similar to woodcut. An image is created by carving into a sheet of linoleum with appropriate linocut tools. The surface of the carved plate is then inked with a brayer and impressed onto paper by hand burnishing. Artists like Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse used this process in their own creative work.
