about the class:
Hosted by our good friend and talented printmaker Erina Pearl, the goal of this workshop is to provide an understanding to block printing. Together we will review the carving and printing process, learn about different tools and techniques in block printing, and create your own block! This workshop will provide you with the fundamental skills that allow you to print on paper or fabric. Students are welcome to bring their own papers, cotton fabric, clothing, and other materials to print on. All other materials will be provided.
All ages welcome, no experience required.
