Calavera Prints

Calavera Prints

Presented by Florida Atlantic University at Florida Atlantic University Library

No experience is necessary for this fun, fast-paced linocut/letterpress workshop. We’re using the calavera imagery of José Posada as a point of inspiration, but don’t let that limit you. You may begin with your own drawing or, for those of us who are lacking in that skill (your instructor included!), you’ll learn how to transfer a found image to a linoleum block for carving. Once they’re carved, we’ll print our blocks on the press inside a framework of historic wood type. Before the night is done, we’ll do a print exchange, too, so everyone leaves with a pretty amazing portfolio of calavera prints, just in time for Dia de Los Muertos. Not bad for three hours’ work! You’ll learn how to print your blocks without a press, too, so you can print more calaveras at home.
