Relief printmaking -- a subtractive process whereby one carves away from a "block" and the areas that remain in relief are then inked to create the image -- is a great way to make fast, vibrant prints. This workshop introduces students to relief-based processes whereby students create a variety of "blocks" from which to transfer various inks onto different papers and surfaces. Included are linoleum cutting, Speedy-Cut blocks, direct impression foam core printing, and several solvent and acrylic medium-based transfer techniques that enable one to transfer digitally printed images onto various surfaces. Students are shown how to transfer their image to the block and learn a range of inking methods, from basic preparation and "rainbow rolls" to multicolor techniques. This is a versatile and portable approach to the printmaking medium and one that lends itself to multiple contemporary art practices.
