About This Class

In just a couple of hours, you can make your own custom linocut block to put your mark on stationery, book plates, clothing labels or whatever else you might want to personalize.

In this Intro to Linocut, I'll show you the process and the tools, and then I'll demonstrate how to cut and print an amazing letterform. This class is great for beginners and those who are looking to extend their printing skills.

And you've taken my Intro to Woodblock Printing class, then you'll already have some of the tools and skills you need for this project!

I work as a technology project manager, but when I'm not at the office, I'm always making things of my own. I especially love illustrating, writing and design.

Here at Skillshare, I focus on teaching printmaking classes -- everything from stencils to woodblock.

I find printmaking inspiring because anyone can quickly start making successful prints with very few tools. It really opens the doors to producing your vision on all kinds of materials: t-shirts, walls, stationery, labels and so much more.
