In relief printmaking we are using the flat surface as the “print” surface. The color reduction method is used in relief printmaking, most commonly with wood or linoleum blocks. Workshop participants will explore how to produce relief prints using the linoleum block for our print plate, mulberry paper for print paper, and a “hand pulled” method of printing with hand tools.

Participants will draw and carve an original image onto linoleum blocks. By carving and printing the blocks multiple times, participants will learn how to print multiple layers of color – building up colors from light to dark. This allows the underlying colors to influence the tone of colors printed over one another. We will be using acrylic inks and a hand pulled method of printing with hand tools.
