Linocuts - Workshop with Kelly Moran

Create your own linocut

  • Redbud Arts Center


What is a linocut? Linocut is a type of relief print using Linoleum. Linoleum was invented in the UK in the mid 1800’s for flooring and Wallpaper. Artists started experimenting with it for relief printing soon after its invention, Picasso embraced the material and pushed it to its limit. To make a linocut, first the plate is prepared by transferring an image to the surface. The image is carved into the Linoleum, using sharp gouging tools. Then ink is rolled onto the uncut surface with a brayer. Finally, paper is laid on top of the Linoleum and pressure is applied with a baren to produce a print. In the workshop participants will be producing a one-color print. Wear your art clothes!
