In this 4-part class we’ll cover how to design and carve at least two rubber blocks to make a multi-colour print. While many printmakers use a press to make their impressions, you’ll learn how you can make prints with your hand or a wooden spoon so that you can continue to print easily at home. Relaxing and meditative, block printing is the perfect way to take a moment for yourself. This class is great for both beginners and block printers who want an added challenge.
- Learn to design a bold, graphic image from reference photos or your imagination, and how to transfer it to the rubber blocks
- Practice carving the block and learn how to ‘draw’ with the carving tool
- Learn how to ink up the block and print your image using water-based inks
- Learn how to layer prints using different blocks and different colours of ink
