2022 marks the Year of the Tiger in the Chinese Zodiac. Brave, charming, and confident, the tiger 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 mighty tiger. 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, just join us for lots of inky fun.
