Block Print Your Own Handmade Holiday Cards with Ali Herrmann on Wednesday, December 7th, from 12 to 3 pm.
$25.00 per student.
Preregistration is required to attend all classes and workshops at Arlene’s. Space is limited so please register soon. Otherwise, please come into the store, at 57 Fuller Rd Albany NY, or call us, (518) 482-8881, to reserve your space.
Using soft rubber blocks, students will learn the basics of making a traditional block print. Techniques will explore developing a transfer drawing, using stencils, block cutting, properly inking cutting blocks, and plate registration. Issues of positive/negative/reverse image will also be discussed. Each student will create an edition of holiday cards to send to friends, family and loved ones! Block Printing Inks are supplied with generous support from Speedball Art Products.
Please note that our classes are typically held in the lower level of Arlene's. Because access to the lower level is available only by stair, please let us know if using the stairs presents any difficulty for you in advance of the class so we can make alternate arrangements. We want to make sure everyone is able to enjoy and participate in our classes.
