Carving a block of grey lino with a gouge

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:

Une formidable parenthèse dans l'univers paisible et précis de la gravure!

Des étincelles apparaissent dans les yeux de Florence lorsqu'elle évoque la gravure.  Etape par étape en passant par l'histoire et l'art de la gravure et quelques artistes emblématiques, elle nous fait entrer dans son monde créatif.  Patiemment jusqu'à l'impression de la création avec là aussi une animation particulière lorsqu'elle parle des outils, des encres sans oublier les papiers qui prennent quasiment vie.  Une très belle expérience, merci beaucoup Florence et bravo pour vos créations et ces ateliers.

J'estime avoir très peu de talent pour les arts graphiques. Et pourtant, grâce à Florence, ses explications claires, son accompagnement attentionné et adapté, sa simplicité dans la relation, le résultat m'a étonné. Le moment de ce bel atelier, le temps s'est arrêté. Le plaisir d'être en présence à ce que l'on fait, avec un beau résultat en prime. Merci Florence pour votre accueil et votre pédagogie !
