Intro To Block Printing: Carve & Print Your Own Designs $56
block

Block printing is one of the oldest and simplest forms of printmaking. It's a relatively simple method for creating your own graphics and patterns, and thankfully only requires a handful of tools and supplies to produce your prints. In this intro to block printing class, you will have the chance to create your own graphic or pattern design, transfer it to an easy carve rubber stamp, then print it on cardstock, a Moleskine journal, and a soft denim tote bag! This class will focus on using water soluble inks on paper and textiles. Each student will have the option of carving one medium stamp or two smaller stamps for printing in class. Students will take home their carved stamp(s), several cards, paper prints, a Moleskine journal and one oversized tote bag (all printed, of course!).

Supplies Needed: None, but feel free to come with ideas for a simple graphic that you'll carve in class.
