Location: Pioneer Park - Cabin 66 - The Folk School Print Shop (Click on the link for accessibility information.)

In this class you will create and print jigsaw linoleum prints in a weekend! Linocut is a process where the surface of linoleum is carved to create a design, and is then inked and printed. Jigsaw linocut is a fun way to incorporate multiple colors in a single linocut print.

For this class we will start with a simplified drawing or photo and create a design. Then we will transfer that design onto the linoleum and carve the image. The jigsaw process involves cutting out parts of the linoleum so they can be printed in different colors. Finally, we will ink all the pieces of the linocut, place them together, and print it on paper.

Students will learn the jigsaw linocut process from start to finish including a brief history of linocut, creating imagery, carving linoleum, and how to properly ink and print their linocut.

*This class will take place both upstairs in the cabin and downstairs in the printmaking studio. If navigating stairs is a limitation for you, please contact Kerri Hamos, Program Director at kerri@folk.school prior to registering for the class.
