Learn the basics of block printing one-on-one in this introductory art partner course.
Block printing is a type of relief printing that utilizes a carved block made of wood, linoleum, softcut rubber, or vinyl. The block is rolled up with ink and printed onto a surface using pressure applied either by hand or a printing press. This crash course includes lessons on carving (into softcut), inking, and printing. Demonstrations will be done with pre-carved blocks with time allowed for you to carve your own block. This course qualifies you for open studio hours so you can continue with your block printing adventures!
