Learn the basics of block printing with artist Cindi Ford and create a linoleum cut to print botanical patterns, vegetables, and garden designs onto paper.
This introductory workshop explores one of the many techniques of printmaking. Linocut is a relief printing technique in which a block of linoleum is used as the relief surface. First, the design is cut into the linoleum surface with a selection of special tools and printed using printmaking ink. Next, learn to transfer the drawings to the block and focus on different carving techniques, exploring what some of the available tools can do.
You will be allowed to overlay and combine prints. No previous experience in printmaking is required.
Cindi received an MFA from Kendall School of Art and Design and was awarded a fellowship scholarship. Ford has won numerous awards at local, national, and international levels. Her work has been in galleries in Michigan, Indiana, Florida, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, New York, Rhode Island, Japan, and South Korea. Recently she was accepted into “The Society of Graphic Arts” in New York. Cindi was an adjunct professor in printmaking at Kendal School of Art and Design. In 2017 she moved to her cottage, the torch lake Bayou to pursue a full-time career creating prints!
