Zine Library Workshop Series: Linocut Printmaking

Zine Library Workshop: Linocut: Marta Chudolinska 2017

Hi, I’m Marta Chudolinska, the Learning Zone Librarian. For the linocut workshop I will be demonstrating the basic techniques, tools and materials and best practices for linocut printing. Before we get started, I have an important safety tip: carve away from your hands!

The second installment of the Zine Library Workshop Series was Linocut Printmaking. Marta discussed the many surface materials that can be used for linocut printing and the range of tools to cut away the design.

For this workshop, students used linoleum and lino cutting tools, a brayer, ink and paper.

Marta’s favourite resources are The Woodcut Artist’s Handbook: Techniques and Tools for Relief Printmaking by George A. Walker and Block Printing: Techniques for Linoleum and Wood— both titles can be found at the OCAD U Library. To learn more about the different types of carving surfaces, carve and print, exercises for developing your carving skills and how to carve and register a two colour print, visit Hanprinted.co.uk or Drawcutinkpress.com .

Thanks to everyone who attended the Linocut printmaking workshop!

Please, have a look at the gallery, it’s full of wonderful prints created at the linocut printmaking workshop:
