Block printing is one of the most recogniseable visuals of the Rebellion. You can make your own blocks from wood, lino, or any other way you can think to make stamps/printing blocks.
How to print:
Making print blocks
There are many great tutorials and resources online for lino & wood cutting, from transferring your image onto your carving material, all the way through to finishing your block.
- Make a block from what you’ve got - guide to getting started with block-making
- Make a print block from cardboard
- Detailed set of lino-cutting tutorials from Australian artist Lynette Weir. There are many more out there…
- Flooring suppliers sometimes have excess or slightly faulty floor lino that you can pick up for free. They may call it ‘marmoleum’ (a brand name).
- Here are some files for 3D printing stamps - you can access public 3D printers at some public libraries and shared-access maker spaces.
- Woodblocks can be carved by hand or with a CNC router (try a local maker space).
