The workshop will examine the history of linocut printmaking and the work of notable practitioners, and Steven will share tips and tricks from his own artistic practice. Participants will complete the workshop with at least one finished edition of prints to take home.
Participants will need to bring a wooden spoon and wear robust clothing that can get inky. All other tools and materials will be provided.
Steven Giese is a Northern Rivers artist whose work ranges from the decorative to the political, and whose recent work in particular responds to environmental issues.
