Carving a block of grey lino with a gouge - beginners printmaking workshop

Allow 3 to 4 hours for a fun and relaxed workshop or one day if you have a special project involving a bigger format or several colours. You may come with your design or not (we can research ideas together). No special drawing ability is required! Here is what is covered during the workshop:

 

  • Understand the basics of relief printmaking, carve the whites and transfer your drawing in reverse

  • Safely carve your design (children will make their designs with biros on foam ; teenagers and adults will learn to linocut without stabbing themselves!)

  • Ink you block using fast frying good quality water based inks

  • Print with a spoon as if you were at home in your kitchen

  • Print with a press

  • Appreciate the result of the inking process and make adjustments in case of problems (too little or too much ink…)

You will have the opportunity to print on different types and colours of paper to enjoy all the choices you have when printmaking! You will go back home with your prints and will have the choice to frame them or send them away !

Reviews from workshop participants:

A wonderful interlude in the peaceful and precise world of printmaking!

Sparks appear in Florence's eyes when she talks about engraving.  Step by step through the history and art of engraving and some emblematic artists, she takes us into her creative world.  Patiently until the printing of the creation with there also a particular animation when she speaks about the tools, the inks without forgetting the papers which take almost life.  A very nice experience, thank you very much Florence and bravo for your creations and these workshops.

I believe I have very little talent for graphic arts. And yet, thanks to Florence, her clear explanations, her attentive and adapted accompaniment, her simplicity in the relationship, the result astonished me. The moment of this beautiful workshop, time stopped. The pleasure of being in the presence of what we do, with a beautiful result as a bonus. Thank you Florence for your welcome and your pedagogy!
