About this Workshop:

2023 marks the Year of the Rabbit in the Chinese Zodiac. Merciful, vigilant, witty, and cautious—the rabbit is said to be endowed with good luck. In this short form class, you will learn how to carve and print using soft easy-carve relief blocks and a template design featuring the moon rabbit. Because everyone carves and makes marks differently in relief work, the fun will be in sharing how unique each person’s final print is compared to the template you started from. Best of all, you’ll have learned all the basic techniques to continue creating prints using your own designs after the class is over! 

Level: Beginner – no experience necessary

Registration closes January 17, 2023 and includes all materials.

“The instructor used slightly different techniques from the Block Printing for Beginners workshop I took recently, which was interesting and informative. She had a lot of helpful information about tools and ink.”
