Linocut Greeting Cards with Emilie

This event has passed Buy Tickets

Event description

Add an extra special handmade touch to your gift-giving this year with your own design lino-printed as a greetings card. It's a design you can print indefinitely!

Did you know that linocut has been used in printing for over a century and this technique was originally for making wallpaper? Printing with linocut is similar to woodcut printmaking but a bit easier to work with (because it has no grain to consider like wood).

In this class, you will learn the entire process spanning designing, carving, inking and printing your own Greeting cards. 


What we will cover?

In this class, you will learn:

  • How to design and illustrate for printmaking
  • All about the history, tools and process of printmaking
  • To carve your design into a lino tile
  • Learn to print!

If you have a particular image in mind, you can bring some photos or preparatory drawings. 

No worries if you don’t – we’ll help you work on your design as well!
