Block printing is an amazing and versatile medium that’s great for beginners and experienced artists alike. The designs can be used to create pretty much anything, from paper arts, like wall prints, personal journals, and cards, to wearable fashions and home décor. If you can dream it, you can make it with this technique! Join artist and printmaker, Kelly Reese, as she shows you how to get started on this fun and foolproof craft.

Kelly will demonstrate how to design and carve a basic relief block print, as well as how to roll ink and regulate printing pressure. After practicing techniques, you’ll design, carve, and print a set of matching block printed cards. You’ll go home with a useful gift for yourself or a friend and the knowledge and supplies to make more block prints.

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, brayer, and ink), and extra cards are yours to keep so you can continue practicing your new skills!
