Graphic printing technique in linoleum
The graphic printing technique in linoleum will be offered at Le Moulin this summer in the Art Weeks. As a course of a few days or a whole week.
The linoprint is a unique way to create an illustration. Linoleum is very well edited with gouging, which gives a lino print its typical appearance and makes it suitable for artistic purposes. Your visual vocabulary is limited to one to three colours per print.
You gush an image into the linoleum: the lines of your drawing keep you untouched and the parts that should be white, the residual spaces, you cut away with a gouge. With a roller you apply ink to the linoleum. Paper on it, passing through a printing press or simply rubbing it with a ball of object and your print on paper is ready.
This way you can make monoprints (with one color printing ink, usually black) and also multiple color prints. In a tricolor print, three pieces of linoleum are required. You can make as many prints as you want with a linone. Ideal for experimenting!
There are many combinations possible with lino: first painting or drawing something and pressing over it, or vice versa, or interspersed with each other. Making a sketch that is suitable for a lino print, practicing with pressure and making adjustments after a pressure takes about one to two days or a number of days.
A course covers the following topics:
– drawing according to your own design or example
– learning to think and look in mirror image
– cutting and gouging into the linoleum
– rolls with printing ink over the lino stamp
– printing on paper
The evening of arrival is one of getting acquainted with each other. A short introduction will be made about the course week. The first morning begins with an extensive introduction. The rest of the 1st course day you will receive an instruction lesson on the tools and techniques and start with the first research phase. In the following days, the program begins daily in silence with the sun saluting, a yoga cycle to wake up with (free participation). The sun saluting ends with a relaxing meditation. After breakfast follows a short creative warm up exercise with the group. Every morning and afternoon you can spend an average of three hours under supervision.
Outside of course hours, it is also possible to continue working independently. You are not obliged to make your own layout. The teacher will visit you to give directions and guide your visual process. Halfway through the week there is an afternoon off for your own interpretation. In between, work discussions take place, because you can learn a lot from each other. The week ends festively with an exhibition of the work made. The next morning after breakfast, everyone leaves home (or stays for another week).
|Part of the day||Program|
|For breakfast 8.45 – 9.15 am||Sun salute, with the first morning|
