What is Print Making?

The Metropolitan Museum of Art tells us printmaking is an artistic process based on the principle of transferring images from a matrix onto another surface. Traditional printmaking techniques include woodcut, etching, engraving, and lithography.

A matrix is essentially a template, and can be made of wood, metal, or glass. The design is created on the matrix by working its flat surface with either tools or chemicals. The matrix is then inked in order to transfer it onto the desired surface. The resulting print is often the mirror image of the original design on the matrix.

This class will teach you all you need to know to create a beautiful, well-made linocut from first draft to final print. Liz will introduce students to materials and tools guide them, show carving techniques and tricks to help to get better results. Each student will create 2 carvings with several printing opportunities to take home.
