This workshop will offer an introduction to the wonderful tools and techniques of the age-old art of block printing. The workshop will teach basic relief printing techniques including creating an image, cutting the image into a block and creating prints with a hand printing technique. Students will work together and receive one-on-one input from the instructor throughout the workshop. Participants will further their understanding of reductive methods in printmaking, and in ways to plan relief images to maximize their success. Their appreciation and understanding of the value of creating artwork will be deepened, and they will come away with prints of their own, and also perhaps, of each others work.
