In this workshop, we will take a dip into the rich tradition of Mexican printmaking, investigating the world of political caricatures, Hojas-volante by José Guadalupe Posada, and contemporary print examples. We will take inspiration from this history of accesibile, powerful, hopeful and political prints to design and carve our own linocuts which will combine text and image.
Creating a linocut from scratch, we will look at different strategies to create a visual language. With Andrea, we will get tricks and tips on tools, inking and printing linoleum. Together participants will compose their own pieces including image and text, to give voice to ideas, dreams or struggles they want to bring into the world. These expansive pieces can be hung in the kitchen or gallery, brought to the streets or sent to our loved ones in the mail.
In order to reserve your space in the workshop, we require a deposit. Registration is on a first-come first-served basis, and you can read about our refund and cancellation policies here.
