Half Day Reduction Linocut Workshop

125.00

Half Day Workshop (3 Colours+)

27th July 2019 from 12 to 5pm held at The BOP Arts Co Op, 10 Wallace street, Meredith, Vic

Join artist Samantha Thompson to learn the basics of Reduction Linocut over an afternoon of fun. This technique creates wonderful colour and texture to work and open up a world of colour if you have only ever printed in one colour!

Artists will be provided with all materials in which to create a reduction linocut, and small edition over the afternoon. You do not need a press to print, in fact hand printing can create some beautiful unique marks.

When people talk about reduction prints, it's sometimes noted that that Picasso invented this technique in the 1950's (see Karshan's book, Picasso Linocuts 1958-1963), but this myth has been debunked. Check out Alisa Bunbury's conference paper, "Not Picasso's invention - a foray into the history of reductive linoprinting" for the fascinating history of the process.

Reduction Linocut

The process starts with carving a design into a new lino block and printing the first color on each sheet of paper in the edition. Then the printmaker carves more of the same block away and proceeds to print the second colour. The process of carving and printing continues for each additional color until the final layer is printed. Typically, one prints from lightest to darkest colour.. After completion of the print, another edition can never be made because the block has been carved away during the creation process.

In small groups this workshop will give you the basics to continue working at home on your own projects.

Afternoon tea provided.

Session cost is $125
