Jon Vogt Relief Workshop at Cardo's Farm Project

Relief Printmaking  with Jon Vogt 
July 27, 10am-4pm
at Cardo's Farm Project
178 Seaborn Rd.
Ponder, Tx 76259

Come explore food and farming through the process of relief printing with UNT Printmaking Graduate, Jon Vogt . This one-day workshop at the Cardo’s Farm, will be an introduction to concepts and techniques of the age old printmaking process. Relief Printing is a technique known for its graphic quality and its use of “white line”. Marks that are carved into the printing block produce negative areas that appear white. This is in contrast to the remaining surface, which receives ink and prints when in direct contact with paper or fabric.

In this six-hour workshop students will learn the process of relief printing through physical examples and demonstrations, and will leave the workshop with direct printmaking experience and handling of a press.  Participants will create a linocut design and will print their unique image onto personal clothing items. Source images will be provided and visual themes referencing agriculture and celebrating the Cardo’s Farm will be encouraged.

Materials included:
8x10 inch linoleum
linocut carving set
clothing items (brought by participants)
