Join us in this workshop exploring the linocut printmaking process. During this workshop, you will enjoy a guided tour of the famed surrealist Salvador Dalí’s printed works at the Nicolaysen’s ‘The Delightful World of Dalí’ exhibit. As you view Dali’s prints, we will discuss his artistic process and the unique potential for material exploration that printmaking offers. Following the tour, you will be able to make some unique prints of your own. Carli Holcomb will demonstrate the linocut process, taking you through each step of the process. We will also discuss additional printmaking techniques seen throughout Dalí’s show. Participants will consider surrealistic motives in Dalí’s art, create a series of unique prints, and engage with the tactile process of carving imagery and producing prints. Once learned, the linocut technique can be used to create prints, cards, textile designs, posters, and more. No prior experience with printmaking is required.
