Free Linocut Printmaking Class

Sara is teaching a class on Linocut Printmaking at the Clark County Public Library. Saturday, July 22nd - 1-4PM. The class is free, but registration is required.. πŸŒ›β˜€οΈπŸ’—

The printmaking technique called Linocut is a variation of Woodcut. A sheet of linoleum is used for a relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with differently-shaped, sharp, handheld chisels. The finished carving can be used to print on paper and fabric.

Because of the tools involved, this class is intended for adults who are comfortable with the idea of using sharp chisels and understand that safety is paramount.

Come learn more about this classic technique and create your own works of Art. You can either bring your own design or use the one she drew pictured, which features a moth and evening primrose. This design was inspired by National Moth Week, which is the last week in July.
