with Piona Keyuakjuk

Tuesday, July 3 • 1:00pm – 5:00pm

Piona, is an Inuit artist all the way from Pangnirtung, Nunavut. He will tech participants how to design and cut lino for printmaking. Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum (sometimes mounted on a wooden block) is used for a relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller (called a brayer), and then impressed onto paper or fabric. The actual printing can be done by hand or with a printing press, such as an Albion or a Columbian press.
