While relief printmaking can take many forms, the most accessible to beginners is Block Printing. In this wrokshop, students will be introduced to the tools and techniques required to create original carved block prints.
They will learn about the various wood and linocutting carving tools as well as the different surfaces used for carving – from simple potato prints to more advanced cherry, birch, and basswood surfaces. Students will then carve, apply ink, and create multiple prints using their carved block and the printing press.
The instructor will go over the distinctions between Artists Proofs, Limited-Edition Prints and the many applications of this process on both fabric and paper substrates.
Tuition: $55 (all art supplies included)
