What is a Linocut? Linocuts are very similar to woodcuts. It is a printing method using a sheet of linoleum, (in our kits, rubber) in which a subtractive cutting method is used to take away the parts of linoleum where you want to leave the white of the page, and keep the parts you want to be inked! In the result you have a linocut that can reproduce the same image over and over again.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a suitable craft for young children. Linocutting Blades are sharp and recommended for ages 8 and older.
