Block Printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking, it has been around for thousands of years. It is essentially using a carved material covered with ink to transfer an image on to a flat surface. There are many different techniques and applications: it can be done with wood, linoleum, rubber and many other materials, mainly onto paper and fabric and other flat surfaces.

In this workshop, the students will learn about creating repeat patterns with hand carved lino blocks as well as the use of multiple blocks in a print. Each class will focus on a different aspect of this technique, allowing the student to come away with a new field of knowledge they can use to create pieces.

Materials fee: $20 (Students can purchase extra materials for an extra cost)

Advanced registration for members begins August 24. General registration for non members begins September 7.
