1 Day Workshop

Tuesday, July 12 | 6-9 p.m.

Introductory level block printing workshop in which students design, carve, and print a rubber stamp. Designs will be sketched on paper first, transferred to a 4" X 6" block, carved by hand and printed with archival ink on printmaking paper. Printed stamps can be tiled to create a repeat pattern or, time allowing, an additional stamp or stamp(s) can be carved with excess block material to create a variety of printed images.
