Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum is used for a relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised areas representing a reversal of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller, and then impressed onto paper or fabric.
The students were exposed to Lino printing and taught the nuances of the fine art of print making. The students got a chance experiment with various linocut tools and carve out interesting designs to create prints and patterns.
