What you'll learn in this block printing class:

Learn the ancient technique of block printing and go home with a whole new skill to continue exploring on your own! In this class we will learn how to carve and print by hand from rubber and linoleum blocks, following the traditional form of printmaking.

Come prepared to learn, explore, and have fun with the endless possibilities of printmaking. Bring your ideas, drawings, inspiration images, or just come as you are ready to experiment and enjoy. By the end of the session, participants will take home the basic tools and resources to continue exploring and making prints at home.

No experience necessary; this class is particularly geared towards those who would not necessarily consider themselves artists, but want to learn a new skill and be surprised by how they can make beautiful art.

You’re paying more so for the space and time to create your masterpiece. Not much teaching here. Come in with a printed picture/outline or else if you don’t know how to really draw, it’ll be tough and you’ll end up making something that won’t be really useful. Instructor was nice and thoughtful though.

Excellent class. Nathan the instructor was prompt and came fully prepared with materials and visual examples. He is knowledgeable and obviously experienced at conveying information clearly and in different ways. He addressed safety issues as well as encouraging individual aesthetic expression. Nathan was there to coach each of us as we reached the next step of the process, i.e., putting a design on the block, cutting, inking and printing. The 3-hour course was just the right amount of time to produce one piece, soup to nuts. Three students was a great class size. The classroom was fine -- well-lit, and wi-fi'd.

Katarina was a wonderful and engaging instructor. My daughter and I took the class together and really enjoyed our time together, the process, our fellow student and Katarina's insightful and creative guidance. We'll be back for more!
