Linoleum Block Printing with Holly Berry
In this hands-on workshop, you will create a multicolor print from a single block of linoleum. The “reduction cut” process involves carving a design from a linoleum block, bit by bit, printing each color in sequence from light to dark, layer by layer. Each color is printed first, then cut away from the block before introducing the next color. A fun challenge as all work, from start to finish, is done in reverse of the final print. Bring a bag lunch.
