Block printing is a technique in printmaking in which an image is carved into the surface of a block. Typically the block material is rubber, wood, or linoleum. This powerpoint will go over the basics of creating block prints which include selecting the tools and materials, cutting the block, inking, and printing. We will briefly explore relief prints (images displaying the use of positive / negative space) for inspiration.
