Block prints look handmade, and it’s the imperfection that draws us in. Because neither the process nor the prints need to be perfect, even mistakes can be lovely!
Join printmaker, Margaret Dahm, as she shows you how to get started on this fun and foolproof craft. First, you’ll use found objects, fruit, and other household items to practice rolling ink, mixing colors, and regulating printing pressure. Next, you’ll design and carve small pattern blocks and play with printing on paper, cardstock, and, eventually, kraft postcards. Then, you’ll puzzle out a design and, finally, carve and make a basic reduction print.
No drawing skills required. All you need is a desire to try something new—and have a great time!?
Your carved block, tools (lino cutters and brayer), and extra cards are yours to take home so you can continue practicing your new skills!
