Clara MacDonell lead a Spare Time Shares on the basics of creating Linocut Prints. The first part of the workshop included a history lesson on Linoleum and introduction to block prints & how to carve linoleum.
The rest of the time was spent creating designs, drawing the design on the linoleum block, going back with sharpie to mark the spots that would receive the ink, then carving!
After carving was complete, the block was inked and transferred onto paper. Everyone got the chance to do multiple prints to practice and to see what their design looked like on different colors of paper.
