The best part about trying a new project is learning a new skill. One of my favorite articles in each issue of CRAFT is the 101. The 101 articles are specifically geared to open the doors to a whole new craft through teaching the ins and outs, coupled with a specific project. There is something wonderfully tangible about coming up with a design, transferring it to linoleum, inking it up, and rolling yourself a print. Back in CRAFT Volume 02, Donna Barger shared her linocut expertise with us in beautifully clear step-by-step, from making your design and transferring it to the linoleum:

To carving the design out from the linoleum:

To rolling your ink and pulling your print. She includes helpful tips and tricks on tools and technique throughout. Here is the project shared with you in our Digital Edition. Make sure to swing on by the Maker Shed to pick up a back issue of Volume 02, if you don’t have one already!

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
