Introduction to Linocut Printmaking by Janet Goldman


Linocut is a relief printmaking technique that creates striking, bold images. Participants will learn the principles of relief printing by making a linocut including how to draw a design, cut a linoleum block, and print it by hand and using a press in black and white as well as color. Each individual will gain knowledge about materials, tools and processes and produce a small limited edition of their own linocut prints. Suitable for beginners and artists looking to refresh their skills or expand their repertoire.  Please note that each class will be restricted to 6 participants

Workshops will be conducted over 3 sessions. Each session will commence at and conclude at 12.0 noon.

Janet Goldman works full time developing her artwork. In recent years she has regularly worked at the access studio at the Australian Print Workshop in Collingwood producing linocuts and etchings. More recently the exploration of the medium of lithography has been important to her. Her studio is at Point Lonsdale where her latest linocuts are being produced in preparation for an exhibition at Cambridge Studio Gallery later in 2012
