The word “Reduction” means is to reduce. In relief printmaking we are using the flat surface as the “print” surface. The color reduction method is used in relief printmaking, most commonly with wood or linoleum blocks. Workshop participants will explore how to produce relief prints using the linoleum block for our print plate, mulberry paper for print paper, and a “hand pulled” method of printing with hand tools.
