Linoleum Carving and Block Printing Workshop - August 17+18

$395.00
A two-day intensive linoleum block carving workshop taught by Katharine in her Portland, Maine studio.
-
This class will be held on August 17th and 18th, 2019. 
-
Tuition includes two days of class, all required materials, two lunches, and a Saturday cocktail hour. 
-
This class will cover the basics of linoleum block carving, starting small and working up to a more advanced large block by the end of the weekend. No previous printmaking experience required, but students with experience are also welcome. 
-
We will start by learning about the tools and techniques of linoleum carving, testing out different materials and practicing different styles. We will run test prints on Katharine’s proof press, learning to ink the blocks and discovering what works best when designing your piece. 
After test carvings and prints, we will move on to carving a larger block, before printing it at the end of the class on fine art paper.
-
Class runs Saturday and Sunday 10-4, and includes lunch both days and a wine and cheese cocktail hour after class on Saturday. All materials included, and you will go home with your carved blocks and your finished fine art piece at the end (time and carving speed permitting). 
-
Each session is limited to 10 students and the class will run even if it isn’t full, so you can begin planning your trip now. We highly recommended buying travel insurance if you are traveling from out of town in the unlikely event of an emergency cancellation. Class is non-refundable, but tickets are transferrable. 
-
Once you are registered, we can help recommend hotels or Airbnbs as well as other things to do in Portland. The summer is the best time to visit, and Maine is beautiful in July and August!
-
Feel free to bring source images or ideas that you are inspired by, but we recommend keeping an open mind on what you’d like to make until you get a feel for the materials.

We will be following up by email with more details closer to the date!
