Class Description

Block printing is fun, versatile, and one of the few types of printmaking you can explore at home with ease. A form of relief printmaking, block printing can be used for fine art, artist’s books, fabric design, t-shirts, tote bags, greeting cards, and many other creative projects.

In this one-day workshop, we will learn all of the basic skills needed to make professional quality one color hand-pulled relief prints. Don’t worry, no previous experience is necessary and all printmaking materials are provided! Each participant will design and carve a 5"x7" linoleum sheet to create unique printing block. We will then explore printing the block both on the press and by hand.

At the end of the workshop, you leave with your beautiful hand carved printing block and an edition of 10 original note cards hand printed by you! Plus, the skills to continue to print your linoleum block repeatedly for years to come.
