Introduction to Linocut Printmaking- with John Bergmeier
 Saturday, October 15- 2 - 4 pm. (Price to come...) 
Linocut printing is a relief printing process where a design is carved into a block of linoleum using a sharp v-shaped tool. The relief printing process is similar to using an inkpad and stamp in that the image and ink to be transferred to the paper is taken from the surface of the printing block.
This beginning class starts with an introduction to the linocut techniques. Demonstration of techniques will follow with time allowed for all to cut printing blocks and to print them.
Bring a Design and/or drawing that you will make into a print. Supplies will be available for purchase at the shop on the day of the class.
John Bergmeier received his BA from Hastings College, Nebraska and his MFA from Wichita State University, Kansas with a focus on printmaking. He has recently been making prints as a participant of the Wayne State Printmaking Workshop in Detroit. His work has been included in numerous group exhibitions internationally and he has been the recipient of numerous awards in national juried print exhibitions.
