Exploring Relief Printmaking


Course description

Printmaking is an art form using transference of an image as its mode of expression. It has a rich tradition that continues to this day with contemporary materials, techniques and themes. This course will offer a few types of relief printing, such as linocut using a soft carving block, stencilling and monoprinting using gelli pads. Students will learn to edition as well as create serials from their images. Some of the offshoots that we will encounter include: rainbow rolls, colour blending, chine collé, and ghost printing. The good news is that you don’t need a press to print. Your instructor will offer possible themes to explore. There will be lectures on the history of print media as well as a focus on interesting contemporary practitioners.

This course is for all skill levels from beginner to advanced. Materials to purchase will include various printmaking paper, inks as well as a linocut block. Some linocut tools and gelli pads will be available for students to share although you are welcome to bring along or purchase your own. We will discuss materials in the first class.

By the end of the course students will have a portfolio of prints. For the last class, we will share our printing efforts with one another through group discussion about process, technique and conceptual development.
