Intro to Relief Printmaking
November 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$160
Instructor: Shelby Dawn Smith
Printmaking is an artistic process based on the principle of transferring images from a template onto another surface, most often paper or fabric. In relief printmaking, the design is carved into a plate (i.e., lino, wood) and the plate is inked with a roller so the ink covers all but the carved out areas. Printmaking is excellent for creating multiples (i.e., post cards, cards) with a handmade touch. It requires minimal supplies and space, making it easy to do at home.
In this class, participants will learn the basics of relief printmaking using “easy-to-carve” lino blocks to create a series of projects to develop their skills. Projects will involve printing on both paper and fabric.
This 4-week course for adults runs Saturdays from 10am-12pm, November 7-28.
