Instructor: Olga Luehmann
This six-week workshop introduces students to the wonderful world of relief printing. Using both linoleum and wood, students will explore the possibilities of carving and printing basic black and white images, then multicolour, then jigsaw, and then finally reduction. No previous experience required!

ACCESSIBILITY: Centre is partially physically accessible. We have a level entrance leading to our shop, information desk, galleries, washroom and traditional print studio. Unfortunately, we do not have automatic doors or an elevator. Our silkscreen studios and digital lab are only accessible by stairs. We are working toward becoming a physically accessible space in the future.
