Description

BLOCK PRINTING BASICS

with Bob Pollard

Learn the art of block printing in the fun and relaxing setting of my Northeast Minneapolis studio

Block Printing is one of the oldest types of printmaking, and has been around for thousands of years. It has been done around the world, with roots in India, China and Japan. There are many different techniques, but it is essentially using a carved material covered in ink to transfer an image on to paper or fabric. Block printing can be done with wood, linoleum, rubber, or many other materials. For this class we will use a thick, high quality rubber block.

$50 per guest (Artists under 12 must be accompanied by a somewhat responsible adult)

You will take home:

† 1 - two-sided, high quality Moo Carve printing block

† 1 - really cool carving tool

† 10 - notecards (with envelopes) that YOU printed

† 1 - incredible lifetime skill

Refreshments will be provided, but be sure to check out the many fantastic eateries and brew pubs in the neighborhood!

Class is limited to 10 guests, so sign up fast!
