Block Carving and Printing

Thursday, March 7, 2019

Learn how to Print and Carve your own linoleum blocks! Taught by experienced maker, Sara Collins, block carving is a fun crafting experience with many applications. Participants who choose to carve will be given a 3"x4" piece of carving material. Design options will be available but you are encouraged to bring own design. If you bring a design to carve be sure to reverse the design (mirror image) if the direction of the design matters. An example may be if a bird faces left, one should print the image with the bird facing right. After carving, participants will get an introduction to block printing, including its history back to the medieval period, and will have the option to print on a canvas bag. You may bring your own item to print on as well. Pre-made blocks will be available in both medieval European and Indian designs. You must be 12 or older to participate.
