with VISITING ARTIST, Andrea LeBlond
Block or relief printing is a great transfer technique for any kind of image, text or design you want on your work. Whether simple or complex, finished linocuts can even be the finished works on their own. When inked with underglaze or slips, you can use the blocks to print directly onto clay or push them into the surface for embossing. Linoleum is flexible and works on flat and curved surfaces making it versatile to use. Clay, plaster, wood and rubber can also be used for block printing. On Friday evening, join the group for a meet and greet, introduction and brief demo by Cleveland Artist, Andrea LeBlond.
Complete the evening by starting your linoleum carving. Please come to this workshop with patterns and designs to work with (the instructor will also have a file of images to choose from). On Saturday, Andrea will give a more complete demo of the printing process in clay and will demo on slab-building and paper pattern making to ease the construction process of hand-building. All supplies are included.
