Ruud, I've never done silkscreening. I have only seen the printing process from afar and understand pushing the ink through the screen, but don't understand how you get the design on the screen.

My profile pic/avatar is a print I made at the Armory in Pasadena on the 19th Century press using Akua inks. It was a 4 session class that I really enjoyed but don't currently have access to a printing press so my results are not the same at home.

I have done a few linoleum blocks/prints but never woodcuts/woodprints. I imagine it's a similar process to lino cuts but with different tools?

For 2 years I did silkscreen classes at the Duvelhok in Tilburg. Learned a lot there and use the printing techniques still but on many different ways. Like the reproduction techniques a lot, and in a way they are handy when doing mail-art. You can reproduce your ideas in other ways then just photocopies or computerprints.
