An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Thursday, repeating until October 26, 2023
Cape Ann artist printmaker Coco Berkman creates images that delight her and hopefully others through the process of linoleum printmaking. Inspired by literature, the natural world and the free play inherent in drawing, she uses sharp japanese tools to carve images into sheets of linoleum and then prints them one color at a time over several months to complete an edition. Coco studied printmaking at several studios throughout the United States, Ireland and South Korea. A long standing member of The Boston Printmakers, her work is in the collection of The Dublin Writers Museum, The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury and in several private collections.
A 4 week journey into discovering the joys of printmaking. This printmaking series led by artist and teacher Coco Berkman, will take place over 4 consecutive Thursday mornings in October.
Students will have a chance to learn this magical and user-friendly “hands on” printmaking technique from someone who’s been drawing, carving and printing with linoleum for over 40 years. Students will explore many technical and aesthetic aspects of relief printmaking. The instructor will bring her own tools that students may use onsite. After carving out our linoleum plates, we will use black water soluble inks along with a matboard template and various burnishing tools to hand pull our completed prints. Please bring your willingness to learn and a 12 X 12” [or smaller] drawing that you’d like to transform into a beautiful linoleum print. No previous printmaking experience is required. Registration closes Oct 2.
