Variants of printing:

You will learn how to apply printing ink to the matrix and how to control the satin machine. You will find out what to print on textiles. You will see an imprint in the ceramic.
In the fourth meeting, you will create a notebook, diary, diary using the book binding technique. Your graphic, textile print, or ceramic tile can serve as a book cover or appear in their pages.
What will you take away?
In addition to knowledge about the method of preparing materials, printing and a little insight into the history of art, you will learn that:
The resulting linocuts can be used as art prints on paper. That is, graphic sheets.
Or use the matrix to decorate textiles. Bags, purses, t-shirts, but also textile fabrics. That is, a textile design piece.
Or you can use the matrix for a tile, a mat for a pot, a napkin stand...
You will bind your own book from your own prints.
You can adjust which option you prefer with the course instructor during the art workshop.
Do you want all three? That is also possible!
So what will be created?
Graphic sheet or textile original print on fabric, handbag, bag, t-shirt...that is, your own unique design piece, ceramic relief.
That linocut can also be considered as an excellent exercise for the right and left cerebral hemispheres! You'll understand that pretty quickly 😊
