Linocut Landscape Printmaking
This workshop explores linoleum block carving to build beautiful landscape art through a relief printmaking process. Artist Aftyn Shah is a self-taught printmaker and painter living outside Philadelphia with her family. Much of her work focuses on the majesty of the Great Outdoors, from nature’s tiny elegant details to the grand sweeping landscapes that take our breath away.
Learn more about the details of this project on Aftyn’s Featured Maker Page.
Along with a digital workshop, Aftyn has curated a kit of tools & materials that she uses in her own studio practice. Your box will feature a beautifully fibrous bookmaking paper in various natural tones and an ergonomic hand carving v-tool. The tool, made from US carbon tool steel and white birch hardwood, is hand forged, polished, and sharpened by 3rd generation family craftsmen at U.J.Ramelson. Located in the New England area, U.J. Ramelson has collaborated with us to build a full set of American-made carving tools for further exploration, learn even more below.
With these expertly crafted materials and the guidance from Aftyn’s experience, we hope you find the wonder as you create a block print piece that speaks to the wanderer within you.
