About this Workshop:

Time to get inky! You want to make prints, but what do you do if you don’t have access to a printing press? Before the printing press was invented, blocks were printed by hand. This workshop will show you how to set up your own home to print successfully. Participants will learn how to hand print using prepared relief blocks (wood and linoleum), set-up and use DIY registration system, and use ink safely at home.

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary!

Registration closes July 16, 2024 and all materials are provided.
