Engraving on Linoleum (Gravure)

Engraving on Linoleum (LINOGRAVURE) is an art form consisting in the production of images, (usually on paper but occasionally on fabric, parchment, plastic, or other support) from an original plate engraved on a linoleum block.
Such fine prints, as they are known collectively, are considered original works of art.
This technique became popular mainly after the 1950s, when Pablo Picasso used it to produce series of brilliant linoleum cuts.

The workshop includes:
- Transferring an image into a linoleum block
- Carving the linoleum blocks with the specific Lino cutter tools
- Inking the carved Linoleum plate
- Producing a series of prints on an A3 press

Participants will perform several assigned print tests and develop their own personal imagery.

No prerequisites are required
