Christopher Rouleau and Tanya Roberts (of Snap + Tumble letterpress) will host a three-hour workshop on the basics of lino printing. During the course of the afternoon, you will learn the basics on transferring your design to lino, carving techniques, and the best ways to ink and press your work. Advanced printmakers may also have the opportunity to print their pieces on the Vandercook printing press, thanks to the help of our friend Kevin King, who works at Coach House.
We will be offering a supplies package at the cost of $25. Your kit will include:
· one 4" x 6" lino tile (super soft or regular - you will specify in your RSVP) · 10 sheets of 5" x 7" white printing paper (you may bring additional paper of your own) · access to black, water soluble ink and a brayer (roller) · 1 Speedball lino carving tool (that you get to keep!) · access to other basic supplies (paper towels, wax paper, graphite paper, masking tape, envelopes, etc.)
Space for this workshop is limited! Please RSVP here no later than Friday, March 14. An email will follow with payment instructions.
We look forward to bringing your talents together, sharing knowledge with one another, and creating some new typographic work!
