LinoBlock Poster Printing
Instructor: Melinda Stockwell
Class Description: This two day course will cover the basics of linoleum carving. Students will work with a 4x6 soft cut rubber block and carve a basic 1 color design. Students will then learn the mechanics of the Vandercook 219 printing press. Students will print their 1 color carvings. We shall critique all prints. Things will advance in skill set as we study the multi-color printing process, learn to set type, and print out a full size poster. This process will allow the students the opportunity to pratice layout, design elements, hand eye coordination, pressure control, and color placement.
Each student completes at least 5 prints of their 1-color carving and at least 5 poster prints on cotton paper. Come join the fun! All materials are provided.
Class Fee: $225 per student
Note: If you intend to continue carving, you might want to buy a Flexcut palm set and bring with you. These sets range from $50-$175. Feel free to call Mel 641-919-7323 to see which set will work best for you. Otherwise Dick Blick exchangeable sets will be available in class.
