Join Val Loewen to explore relief printing through linocut. In this process, carving tools are used to create positive and negative shapes on a lino block, the block is then inked with a brayer and printed. In this class students will learn the basics of carving and printing a lino block using a printing press, hand printing methods will also be covered. Students will have the option of creating a single or multi-block print.
