This two-day workshop is an exploration into the process of reduction linoleum block printing. The process involves alternately carving and printing a single block to develop an image in overlapping layers of color. This process is great fun and yields exciting results, rich in color. Both hand and press printing will be available to participants, using water-soluble inks and Japanese paper. Each participant will complete a small edition made from 3 – 4 layers of color/passes of the block.
