About this event

Learn the basics of block printing with artist Chemin Hsiao and create a linoleum cut to print botanical patterns and designs onto paper. This workshop is inspired by Shapes of the Garden, Chemin Hsiao's exhibition on view in the Visitor & Administration Building Gallery December 3, 2021 through April 10, 2022.

Registration required. Drop-in participants are welcome upon availability.

$15 Materials fee for Non-Members / $12 for Members*

Shapes of the Garden is a series of woodblock prints inspired by the ever-changing shapes and colors of Queens Botanical Garden. Based on the Japanese ukiyo-e Mokuhanga (Woodblock Print) tradition, Chemin Hsiao’s prints capture the seasonal transition throughout the Spring and Fall of 2021.
