Explore the endless possibilities of printmaking! In this three hour hands-on intensive you'll learn how to create and print your own design using a linoleum block. Working alongside Nathan Catlin, an experienced printmaker and educator, you'll learn all about the ancient technique of block printing and gain the skills necessary to make beautiful prints on your own. We encourage you to bring in ideas, sketches and inspiration images or just come as you are ready to experiment and enjoy.
By the end of the session, participants will take home the basic tools and resources to continue exploring and making prints at home.
Materials to Bring:
Your ideas, artwork design/reference for what you might like to print.
Additional paper may want to print on. You will be given paper in class.
- Please wear clothes that can get messy.
