During this workshop, we will explore how printmaking can serve as our visual language to narrate stories and express ourselves. We will pair relief printing with the long standing tradition of do-it-yourself zine making. After looking at a large variety of examples and brainstorming together, each student will design and carve a linocut that is meant to be cut, folded, and transformed into a zine using a single sheet binding. This class will focus on linoleum cutting and printing techniques, the creation of dynamic and sequential graphic imagery, as well as the incorporation of text and image for visual and narrative impact.
