Learn how to design, carve and print a relief block with carving tools. You will leave this class with prints of your own custom image!
This class will cover the basic processes used in relief block printmaking. We will review image design for this medium, preparing your block, carving, and printing techniques. Students will produce a single-color relief block from start-to-finish, which they will print on paper or their own fabric items.
Participants will need to bring their own 3×5 black and white design. Text is not easy in this medium and should be reserved for experienced relief block printers.
Students should wear clothes that they are not afraid to get dirty – we will be using permanent rubber-based ink that cannot be removed with detergents! Please also wear closed-toe shoes and tie back long hair.
Block materials, carving tools, paper and ink will be provided. Participants need only bring their image. Images should be one color, and roughly 4 x 6 inches.
