From raw, colorful expressionism to delicate, highly-detailed monochrome rendering, the linocut is truly an exciting and vital medium which has captivated me for over 18 years. Over the course of this interactive workshop, we will explore approaches to layout and design that give you the freedom to best express your particular images. We will carve in several different grades of linoleum as well as wood for this workshop.

The Zoom format will allow for immediate response and discussion to any questions or concerns you have during live class or email afterwards if that works better for you.

You will develop confidence with cutting tools and learn hand-printing techniques. We will be working in both monochrome and color reduction cut techniques. Returning students welcome. Beginning to advanced. This is a satisfying, inexpensive, and non-toxic art form that is workable in any size home studio.


NICHOLAS COLLINS studied art history and sculpture at UCSB and trained in etching and linocut at KALA in Berkeley where he was an artist in residence for two years. He has shown his work in galleries in the Bay Area and Sonoma and Mendocino counties. Nicholas has been teaching linocut workshops and ongoing classes at the Mendocino Art Center for several years. For the last two years, Nicholas has been teaching linocut to classes of artists with developmental disabilities at Art Explorers in Fort Bragg.
