Relief Printing Without a Press (PRI2123.02)

Corinne Rhodes

Using a choice of linoleum or wood blocks and non-toxic water-soluble ink, we will examine different approaches to mark-making: from graphic and angular to painterly and gestural.  Students will learn image preparation and transfer methods, sharpening and care of tools, wood and linoleum carving methods, ink and paper preparation, hand-inking and rolling techniques and relief printing by hand. We will also introduce students to printing on the Vandercook Proofing Press via Zoom demonstrations. We will also cover color mixing, preparing and printing multiple-color prints, producing multiples/editions, experiment with stencils, layering color and a variety of monotype techniques, chine-collet and embossment.

Experienced and beginning woodcutters/relief printmakers are welcome to join us.

Students will be expected to work remotely from their homes/studios and purchase the necessary materials for this class, estimated at a minimum of $75-$100.
