A small-group workshop to discover linocut printing

In this workshop, you’ll learn all the steps involved in creating a Japanese linocut. So we’re going to draw, engrave, ink and print! I’ll offer you several Japanese-inspired design templates or manga to transfer, as well as several customization elements (Japanese motifs, etc.) to engrave a personalized plaque. After this convivial moment of creation, you’ll leave with your engraved linoleum plaque and the print you’ve made on Japanese mulberry paper.



The linocut workshop in detail

  1. Introduction to linocut and related techniques
  2. Design: Transfer of the design and custom motifs onto the linoleum supplied.
  3. Engraving: You’ll engrave your image in the lino plate using several gouges (fine, medium and one large) which we’ll lend you.
  4. Inking: Your engraved plaque is inked using a Japanese roller.
  5. Printing: Using a Japanese baren, transfer your motif onto a sheet of mulberry paper.
  6. While your print is drying, we’ll keep in touch and I’ll answer any questions you may have.
