This post is for my local friends only. There are still spaces available in the introductory block printing class I'll be teaching next monday night, April 30th, from 7-9:30 at Hootenanny Art House in Park Slope. Here's the deal:
In this workshop you’ll learn the basics of printing in relief, using linoleum and rubber block. We’ll cover how to transfer an image onto the printing block, and how to use standard block cutting tools. We’ll start by printing on paper, and then move into printing on fabric; each student will then design and print his or her own tote bag. Class fee covers all materials, including a set of linoleum cutting tools and printing block for each student to take home. This class is for suitable for beginners or those with some printmaking experience. Fee of $35 payable to me on the evening of the class.
To register, email Kira at firstname.lastname@example.org and specify Block Printing in the subject line.
Hope to see you there!
UPDATE: This class is now full, but stay tuned for further classes I'll be teaching in the coming months!
