Event Overview

Bring the gals for a special valentine themed card making class. Students of all experience levels are welcome to register. All you need is a creative spark and a desire to make something awesome.

Relief printing is a process by which a selected area is carved out of a block (the block can be wood, linoleum, rubber etc). The block is then “inked” and “pressed” in order to create an image on paper. Imagine creating your own rubber stamp, but larger and with more artistic flexibility.

I will show you how to transfer the image to a block of linoleum, how to carve it out, demonstrate some inking techniques, and show you how to print. You can expect to complete an edition of 3-5 prints during class on beautiful high quality archival artists' paper cards. Your block is yours to keep, so you may extend your "edition" and continue printing at home after you leave!!!

fee covers blocks, inks, and paper. Carving tools will be provided for your use as well.

Class size is limited to 15 so everyone has an opportunity for one-on-one instruction with me and time to learn safe carving procedures and experiment with different printmaking techniques.

Several valentine themed images will be provided to work from. You are also welcome bring your own images to work from. I suggest bringing a variety of images as some images are easier to simplify and transfer better than others.

Minimum age

All ages welcome
