You love block prints, and you would love to try block printing. But you hesitate to take this class because you’ve never done any printmaking. Or even any drawing. Or anything artistic in your whole dang life.
Or you’re a professional artist who worries it will be too easy, and you’ll finish way ahead of everyone else.
Fear not! Block printing is The Great Equalizer: artists and amateurs and everyone in between are bound together by the challenges and rewards of this process. During this workshop, you will amaze yourself by carving and printing two linoleum blocks, one for each color, and printing your own two-color note cards. They will not be perfect (that is the charm of the handmade print). But they will be fairly stunning.
Designs will be provided, or you can bring your own sketches.
Laura will demonstrate the steps and as you work, she will tell you stories of triumph and tragedy, using some of her own prints to illustrate. And she will provide you with your own block printing kit to take home so you can continue on your own printmaking journey long after the workshop has ended.Call 585-244-9312 or use the form below to register.
