Reformation: linocut printmaking

We started a new block on The Reformation, and I’m loving it! Tomorrow is the first day of Martin Luther, under whom we learn about movable type and the printing press. To really drive home this concept if how long printing took place on previous machines, we did a day of linocut carving.

You can get a kit for about $160 online for 25 students. I happened to inherit mine.
