In this introductory print workshop, participants will enjoy an afternoon learning how to carve linoleum blocks to create hand-made prints from start to finish! Everyone will come with an idea or sketch and learn how to properly prepare blocks with their image, carve and sharpen tools, and print with and without a press. Although standard paper will be provided, participants are encouraged to bring extra (optional!) materials such as totes, shirts, found materials, and other types of paper to experiment!
All materials are provided and all experiences welcome – must be 15+
