Linocut Printmaking Workshop with Johnny Plastini

Robert W. Hoffert Learning Center: Saturday, November 4, 1-4 p.m.

Master printmaker and Associate Professor Johnny Plastini leads a special workshop on linoleum carving and printing! Held in conjunction with the current exhibition Demonstrating Democracy, this workshop will feature an historical presentation by museum director Lynn Boland on Mexican linoleum and woodblock prints followed by hands-on printmaking practice. Participants will each carve a 6 x 9 in. linoleum block and produce three prints to take home (after heat setting).

Appropriate for beginners and those with foundational printmaking skills.

This workshop requires a $10 materials fee, which will go towards ink, linoleum blocks, and paper. Please visit our online store to pay the $10. Paying this materials fee automatically registers you for workshop.
