Join instructor Amber Gravett for making linocut prints! A linocut is a type of printmaking which involves cutting into linoleum with carving tools to make a relief image. The image is printed either by running the carved block through a press or by rubbing the back of the paper with a spoon. Multiple layers can be used to make different colors in the same image. Once the carving is complete, the linoleum can be used to make an infinite amount of prints.
