REDUCTION LINOCUT PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP

NEW REDUCTION LINOCUT WORKSHOP WITH ARTIST MILENA DRAGIC

THIS WONDERFUL WORKSHOP IS AN INTRODUCTION AND DEVELOPMENT OF REDUCTION LINOCUT AND PRINTMAKING, AN EXCITING TECHNIQUE AND METHOD WHERE A SINGLE LINO BLOCK IS USED TO CREATE A LIMITED EDITION OF PRINTS. HERE THERE IS THE ADVANTAGE OF CREATING FULL COLOUR PRINTS WITH EXCELLENT REGISTRATION AND CREATIVITY. IT IS THROUGH A SERIES OF PROGRESSIVE CUTTINGS, INKINGS AND PRINTINGS THAT YOUR IMAGE SLOWLY EMERGES WHISLT YOUR ACTUAL LINO BLOCK IS DESTROYED, MEANING A REDUCTION PRINT CAN NEVER BE REPRINTED. DURING THIS WORKSHOP YOU SHALL THEREFORE: LEARN HOW TO TRANSLATE YOUR IMAGE OR DRAWING OF YOUR CHOICE INTO A LINOCUT, HOW TO SAFELY CUT YOUR BLOCK IN WHICH ORDER TO PRINT SEVERAL COLOURS FROM LIGHT TO DARK, HOW TO REGISTER YOUR BLOCK ACCURATELY, SO THAT PRINTING IS NOT OFFSET, AND PRINT AN EDITION OF EIGHT REGISTERED, FULL COLOUR PRINTS IN UP TO SIX COLOURS.
