Printmaking on Fabric
Time and date: October 25; 10 am – 1 pm
Registration deadline: Oct 22
Explore relief printmaking on fabric. Create original designs and learn the process of carving linoleum using the tools and water-based ink. The instructor will also have finished linocuts that can be incorporated into the work. Students are welcome to bring their own fabric to work with, and images can be abstract or figurative. Cindi will demonstrate how to use the tools, roll out ink, and print on the fabric and reveal how to create a random vs. structured pattern with the linocut images. GAAC will have fabric and paper for experimenting with student prints.
