Bold Geometric Patterns: Block Printing Workshop

Saturday and Sunday, JULY 12–13 [10–4 PM]
$180 | 8 participants max

Print your own beautiful and striking designs in this exciting two-day workshop.  To get the weekend started with a bang, we will begin by working directly at the press using a variety of precut shapes and multiples to create layered compositions.  Taking inspiration from these experiments done at the press, you will then cut your own linoleum blocks and design elements.  There will be a basic carving demonstration showing you everything you need-to-know, so no previous experience needed!   We will be mixing and printing with semi transparent inks; with this method even the simplest shapes will yield sophisticated results with ink overlays. Since we will be using multiple blocks to print your patterns and designs, it is likely that you will find unexpected and fruitful opportunities to utilize and incorporate elements created by your fellow classmates as the printing session goes on.  

Instructor: Bryan Baker is an artist and teacher, and Signal-Return’s Printer-in-Residence.
