Lino Printing

April 16, 2018 - 10:30 pm

Learn how to carve your own butterfly and print it. These can be printed on cards or mulberry paper.

Gretchen Phillips joins us in the Meraki Arts Studio to teach a lino printing class.┬áThis technique is a form of fine art printmaking where the printing plate is cut into lino. Yes, lino as in linoleum, as in the floor covering. The lino is then inked, a piece of paper placed over it, and then run through a printing press or pressure applied by hand to transfer the ink to the paper. The result, a linocut print. Because it’s a smooth surface, the lino itself doesn’t add texture to the print.

Reservations are requested by Monday, April 9.
