Dates: Friday October 20, 2023
Time: 6:30 - 8:30PM (2 hours)
Learn with Lola, a local queer artist and printmaker, how to design, carve, ink, and print your own linocut prints. This guided workshop is designed for participants age 16+ at any level of artistic skill. We will go over vocabulary, techniques, materials, and safety before diving into creating your own lino block stamp! You can follow one of three designs created for this class, or design your own, making this suitable to absolute beginners as well as artists looking to try out a new medium. At the end of the two hour workshop, you will be able to take home up to 10 black and white prints of your making, as well as your custom lino block and the know-how to make many more!

Lola Posy (she/her) is a West End Toronto artist who embraces the intersection of queer and disabled life experiences with her love of nature, animals, and colour. Variety is her medium; linocut printing, digital illustration, and fiber arts are her current focus, but she loves exploring new mediums and finding new ways to engage her artistic practice with the world around her.
