Linoleum Printing

A fantastic printmaking workshop!

Using professional linoleum cutting tools, students carve their own designs into Safety-Kut blocks. These lino blocks are then inked and transferred onto specialty rag paper. Students are shown techniques for printing without a press to create stunning imagery.


What People are Saying about Linoleum Printing

“Great to have someone with specific knowledge and a project that I could not have completed on my own. Our instructor had the time to discuss the original drawing requirements that would make the best outcomes. I really appreciated this and since we had some extra time, some kids changed their pictures. The result was probably the best prints I have seen one of my classes complete.”
– Teacher from Clara Tyner


Required:

  • Two large tables covered with kraft paper for printing stations
  • Desks covered with paper
  • Access to water and plenty of drying space.
  • Templates and information will be sent one month before the workshop so students can complete a drawing ahead of time.

Class Preparation

Please cover desks and tables with paper before the instructor arrives. Kraft paper is best for clay and messy workshops. A large central table is needed for some workshops such as Decorative Eggs, Inuit Inspired Printmaking and Linoleum Printing. Access to water is essential for clean up whether it’s a sink in the classroom, bathrooms, or a large bucket filled with water. Remember to wear nametags and dress for art!

Inspirational artist-led demonstrations provide technical instruction and guidance. An art-history perspective enriches programs where applicable. The highest priority is to stimulate each student’s imagination and creativity.
