Facilitated by Heidi Mielke, a visual artist, printmaker, activist, and arts educator.

She specializes in a range of printmaking techniques including Linocut!
What is Linocut?
Linocut is a relief print technique where an image is carved out using linocut tools. The plate surface is then inked up and printed using a press or by hand. We use linoleum, a material usually used flooring and wallpaper, it is softer, smoother and more malleable than wood’s hard surface, hence the term Lino-cut.
Participants will need to bring an A5 picture of what they would like to print. You will be shown how to transfer your image on the lino plate, carve your image, ink and print your very own linocut print!
Please Contact email@example.com for any questions related to the technique.
