First Friday: Center for Book Arts Workshop

Apr 1, 2022

Join Center for Book Arts for this in-depth linoleum printing workshop inspired by the printing techniques in Ethel Reed: I Am My Own Property. In this course lead by artist and printmaker Elizabeth Castaldo, students will learn the basics of relief carving and printing. Using speedy carve blocks—an easy to carve material—we will practice carving techniques using linocut tools. Each student will create their own block with their own original image. We will then learn to print the blocks by hand using water based inks on paper. The instructor will cover methods for transferring an image to the block, various carving techniques, inking the block, and printing. Students will leave the workshop with a block they can continue to print from at home.  Members receive 20% off by entering their email at checkout!
