Introduction and continuing practice in reduction linocut printmaking. Reduction allows for wonderful carved textures, painterly effects and experimentation in relief printmaking. This is not a beginner's class: students must have some previous basic printmaking experience and drawing ability.

Using a single block of unmounted linoleum and working with oil-based inks, we'll explore advanced reduction for those who want to take their relief printmaking experience further. In-depth instruction in pin & tab registration techniques, using an etching press and methods and materials, with an emphasis on design and pre-planning will be offered in this class. Ages 17 and up.
