Level 1 Block Printing: No prior block printing experience is needed. No prior drawing or illustrative experience necessary.
Join Thea Gahr, a local printmaker, and member of the Justseeds Artists Cooperative for a 3-hour workshop on block printing. During class, students will design, carve, and print their own blocks onto a handkerchief to take home with them. We will cover block printing techniques such as:
- Creating a successful design for the medium
- Proper carving techniques and use of the tools
- Learn the art of inking and printing with hand-carved stamps
