Using easy to cut rubber like blocks, we’ll cut a block and repeat it to make a pattern, then print on fabric or paper. Participants in this workshop will learn the fundamentals of making black and white relief prints. The 2 session class will cover block preparation, transferring an image onto the block, carving techniques, and the printing process. Participants will leave with prints and with a carved linoleum block which can be used to make many more prints. No experience necessary! This class will take place at Myrtle Press located inside Verge Center of the Arts.
