Saturday March 07th – Linocut Print Making Workshop on Paper & Tote Bag

RM170.00RM220.00

Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum (sometimes mounted on a wooden block) is used for a relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller (called a brayer), and then impressed onto paper or fabric. Although linoleum is a floor covering that dates to the 1860s, the linocut printing technique was used first by the artists of Die Brücke in Germany between 1905 and 1913, where it had been similarly used for wallpaper printing.

Artist Baba Wong from Temu Studio will share his in depth knowledge of lino carving and printing. Baba is a lecturer in fine art and also one of the members from Temu Studio. He often found himself creating artwork in the form of pop-expressionist with collage technique in creation of segmentation concept through relief form. He has exhibited his artwork in multiple galleries across ASEAN.

In this session, Baba will go through the basics of the carving tools and carving techniques, you will learn how to identify what makes an ideal image for a linocut artwork. You will begin by tracing the selected pattern or design and transferring them onto the lino surface. Then, using various linocut blades, you will carve the lino block to create a positive image. Finally, you will ink the image using a brayer (or roller) with block printing ink and print the image onto paper or fabric surface.

We will design, transfer the image, and carve onto a lino block, and print your final artwork on a card as well as a tote bag. You will go home with a carved linoleum block, which you can print over and over again, and a copy of your mono-colour linocut print + tote bag.
